Be nice to the newbies...all of us have been there.

The video was a bit long winded though...would have liked to see more sailing.

I agree that he should have kept the camera running, that would have been the most interesting part.

I am just glad to see our sport grow.

Brings back some memories for me of our early sailing days...how excited we were just to be able to day sail, how proud we were of our little vessel and how much we didn't know...or CARE!!
Nice to see!

BUT, I'm ok with making fun of the boat some, but I sure love the guy's enthusiasm for sailing... very good to see.
Yes... i wish some of my friends had that kind of enthusiasm about sailing. A few of them sail often but most just haven't been given the chance to see what it's about. We take friends with us as much as possible and always have a blast. Well... except for that one lightning storm.

Hmmm.. out on the water... tallest thing for miles is your mast... and you wonder why your friends aren't enthusiatic about sailing....all they remember is being a ground zero for a lightning bolt.

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.

Classic...That video should go out with every brochure request straight from McGregor to the potential buyer.

That's about all i remember too. It took me almost 2 years to "get back on the bike." That trip was insane. As in "I'm going to die any second" kinda insane. I think i spent the next two years researching lightning and coming to the conclusion that i can do a few things to help but it's really just out of my control.

True story: In that storm we saw a sailboat get hit TWICE and later found out that one of the crew died. The mast lit up like a filiment on a lightbulb. So after that i thought ...it really could have been us.

oh sorry... what was this thread about?
