Well, then somebody had better teach the next generation of Polynesians how to make a Chicago-style deep dish, or the Next Generation of cruisers will be whining on their blogs about how crappy the pizza is in the Marquesas... (grin)

You consider that pizza?

Anyone been there and can inform us if they really eat it, or is it some Calif dreamed up thing?

True, quite tasty as well after several months of being pizza less. Now we can make a better one onboard....

I had some spectacularly lousy pizzas when I lived in Mexico (they put freakin' CORN on some of them - WTH?), and some equally bad ones in Fiji.

Ain't nothing wrong with harshing bad pie.

Not mine, but a good story and would certainly seem to qualify as a BFS

The link posted by The Mariner to the Cowes Race Week boat dismating was like replaying what happened to me off the Brazilian coast in 2006. It was nighttime and my ship was much bigger (800-feet) and moving a bit faster, but the accident was much the same: A T-bone, my ketch then sliding down the ship's port side, the ship's port anchor catching the forestay/roller furler and carrying it away. But my mast stayed up. Isn't sailing fun?

I absolutely loved this story, and agree with the author's final sentiments.

Check out this BFS by davidpm! We rarely get video of dudes throwing down in heavy conditions. This is a great one!

Okay - so some really great stormy BFS above. Now to switch gears. Below is a series of 6 videos that, I think, show the very stark reality of cruising (especially singlehanding). It's sure to raise some hackles and fire off some vitriol (which is always fun) - but it's one of the most informative, honest, unadulterated, unglamorous, and real accounts I've seen.

Many of you will be seriously rolling your eyes and getting annoyed in the first three minutes of the first vid...but you should really just buck up and watch all 6 - then feel free to erupt...or sympathize...or whatever...

DrakeParagon and the "NYC to Bermuda Nightmare" in his Westsail 42:













This series kind of covers the gamut of issues faced and lessons-learned. And despite it all, he made it. From that perspective - definitely BFS.

Thoughts?
