Show Your Rough Weather Pics...

Post your rough weather sailing pictures or stories of lore and survival at sea here

So far I have only one good photo of my girlfriend, Silya, this was taken in
December here in the Straight of Georiga, BC... Note that what is on her face is not a "smile" but a look of terror that says: "You take the wheel, I've had enough of this!"

I am the arm in red grabbing on to the back-stays and shielding her face from the wind. Behind, the white, is rain, snow, and fog. Some fine off season sailing, lol.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Billangiep-

I like the rainbow photo, but think it would have been really nice if you could line up the rainbow and the sailboat's mast... Not that it isn't a nice photo... i just like the idea of a sailboat at the end of a rainbow, looking like it is making it.

Since we're on the rainbow topic, following are just a few of a series of shots I took one day last season while approaching our Newport Harbor mooring.

We frequently do overnighters after work - away from the marina. On this afternoon, I rushed home from the office after my wife and I spontaneously decided to head out for the night. There was a dead calm so I didn't bother to raise sail or check the forecast.

Just before crossing under the Newport Bridge, NOAA announced an emergency broadcast of a fast moving squall heading from the west - with dangerous winds and damaging hail. All vessels were to seek safe harbor immediately.

We saw the approaching front, secured the boat and moved from the aft helm to the pilothouse - just before it hit us. Waves in the Bay kicked up as we were pelted with rain and even with the sails down, the boat heeled over 20 degrees.

Just as we approached Newport Harbor, the front cleared out . . . the setting sun revealing an inspirational, double rainbow:
