Disappointed you didn't let me know you were in Ecosse Smack.

Are you in Edinburgh, Scott? I posted about our trip in another thread asking someone to let us steal their boat. No takers.

Sorry we missed you.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

I'm on the River Clyde outside of Glasgow. Though my time here is now short because I'm going to the States to look for a bigger boat. I have done a lot of sailing out of Oban in years past but now mostly pass through on an annual race up to Tobermory. Now that you have had a small dose it sounds like you want to come back cruising. I don't blame you. There are a lot of places to park up for the night. The area doesn't get a lot of cruisers due to the colder weather. Sorry I missed you too.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

dear smacky baby,
margo roark, aka flysci, has earned her ragged wings.
she, directed by me, sailed through a papagayo. she only used one single reef. i think id a done at least second reef point-- so, lady who studies flies of fruit variety has earned the bfs tee shirt.
oh yeah-- she used a sloop. when i sailed my huge chubasco i used 2 small sails on a ketch....she wins!!!
i told her reef n run..... whooooot.... and wow.

yeah. the main blew

i forgot to say she is sailing from costa rica, quepos, to chiapas, mexico, then from chiapas mexico to barra de navidad, jalisco mexico, some 20 mi north of manzanillo..
yes she knows it is furycame season, and yes we have her back.
hell she not doin bad--she got there from bern , conn, originally....lol

Zee - tell her to create an account at the shop and I'll definitely throw her a free tee. I'll even throw in a couple of extra goodies if she does a write up here about it.

"Arrrrr!!!" (that's not really my pirate face. I was just blinded by the sun )

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

oh i failed to mention, that most folks who know me get a wild ride on their way to this port--even i did--lol mine was only a chubasco of 60 kts, but, hell that wasnt anything after some of those severe storms in gom.. shoot those are wicked...
message sent, thankyou!!

post scriptum
from Margo Roark
7:15 PM

to me
"The sailing was fun and fast! Ron hand steered for hours. Made great time for awhile. I think the sail opened along a seam, so we wouldn't need anymore material. So if someone has a tough machine and the right thread, and the space to spread it out that would be great.
We are having a great time. Keep us up to date on any possible storms forming. Can't wait to get there for the partay!"
