Tough crowd

Remind me to never show pictures of me sailing my boat. Not sure my ego could take the criticism!

Smack is coming up to visit us in June. I expect to throw quite a few beers his way. It's meant (and taken) purely in fun. I for one respect his eagerness to learn and the enthusiasm he shows toward sailing. Besides, he learned something about cunninghams and things like that.

Fear not posting a picture of yourself sailing. You'll have fun and maybe learn something (if not get a few beers out of it).

Hey - flat-running multis obviously give their skippers more time to study sailing encyclopedias. I mean, there's that.

Bene - are those the "big girl panties" T always refers to? Otherwise, dude, if those are yours, suddenly I'm very busy in June.

And Twins - don't sweat it dude. Dog is the only one that doesn't seem to have a sense of humor about it all. Of course, that's what makes it funny.

(PS - Bene, if you're driving home AND having recurring nightmares while doing it - you reeeaaaalllly need to get that narcolepsy thing back under control.)

Alex,

Anywhere near Taos? they might be still open to make some ear to ear arcs on snow! You can get a BFS(ki) in!

Sailing starts soon

So sailing season starts here in a few weeks. Maybe I'll get the courage to show pictures - I better prepare my ego! Besides, it's my last season with this boat. Switching from an Express '34 to a Seawind 1000XL - yes Smack, that means I'm going to the dark side of multihulls!
