Fred,

You are a very good sailor. Keep the pictures coming.

Also, what do you do when you flip?

Regards

no.

I flip sometimes.

But now I capsize less than before sometimes I sail 2 months and no capsize, but sometimes I capsize 2 times in one day.

but yesterday i fell of my boat

I miss the foot strap when I went outside, and fell of the boat. duh

so I climb again on the boat, from the stern, near the rudder so I don't capzise again.

look of the video I climb to the boat...my friends come to help if I need, because the water was bad. but I sayed I am ok, lets go again.


Remember..we are the future of sailing

In the end, I truly admire your willingness to throw up a #1 in 25 knots. That's truly a big freakin' sail, brother! Kudos!
Sorry to dissapoint you there, but it wasn't my willingness... it was the boat owners that decided to use that one... me, I'd prudently have chosen a #2 or #3 right from the start.

I may be getting a little experience dealing with the elements, but I'm very much aware of my limitations... I've just been out sailing 5 or 6 times, about 4 hours at a time. Portuguese does not equal insane...

Naaa, wuffles. I "Took it to FC". If he wants more it'll stay there where it belongs.

Anyway, BFS is about sailing. And everyone's got the right to throw down.

Speaking of, didn't I hear you got "totally salt faced" on your last sail? I think we've just invented a new term.

Here's the picture of mrwufles with salt caked on his face. This was right after we stepped off the boat in Seacliff, NY.
