1)Don't tell your wife a new main costs only 5000.00 Euros, specially if your bank account is common to the couple. They can add 2 and 2......and see the real number....

2) Don't tell your wife 2 months later, a new Genoa costs only 5000.00 Euros, specially if your bank account is common to the couple, and she has a good memory.

3) Don't tell your wife to jump...they are bad at jumping.....or don't know the word.....

4) Don't tell your wife lets go South with them, and race a little, when you promised to spend 3 days at anchor in the sand banks.

5) Don't tell your wife the repair that you need to do takes only 5 minutes....

6) Don't tell your wife that spreader lights are heavy and affect performance....

1)Don’t keep saying “since you’re down there” every time you ask her to go below.

2)Don’t forget to tell her waves are coming when she is down below

3)Don’t forget to brace yourself to the bulkhead when you are down below using the head and last time you forgot to tell her waves were coming. (you will pee all over the walls)

4)Don’t forget to chill the wine.

5)This is important; on day one of a 5 day sail, don’t anger the girlfriend. It’s amazing how cold the v-birth is when you are alone!

6)Don't tell her it's so easy anyone could do it.

Giu-

You're finally learning... She's smarter than you and prettier than you...

JT109-

We have a sitting use only rule for the head... not so convenient for the guys, but makes cleanup a lot simpler. It sounds like you're learning fast though...

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.

I’m the Captain and she is the First Mate and the least she could do…(oh no, she might read this) CORRECTION: I am the Deck Hand and she is the Captain. Nothing like peeing all over the wall and yourself only to come up on deck and find her doubled over in laughter with a camera in her hand.

No Giu, I’m not going to post that picture.

I learned the first day that what she says goes. Why exactly I’m not sure but it’s clear form the lavender soap in the head and the lazy jacks on my mast.

LOL... If you're not careful, she'll post that photo of you... I'd be extra nice to her for a bit... or find the file and delete it...
