Cigars?

Does anyone enjoy a fine cigar or pipe while underway or docked/anchored. One of my fondest memories involving sailing was having a cigar and much a bottle of wine (while docked of course!) on my boat. It was a beautiful night with a slight chilly breeze with a sky full stars, and moonlight water. With stars, the moon, the tapping of the rigging, lapping of water on the hull, a cigar and wine was a great night!

Once a year in the spring, usually the first week of May, I have a good cigar and a goodly amount of vodka or rum and remember the good friends who have passed away.

No excuse needed to have a sun-downer on any other day on the boat! And a good pipefull of Bright & Burley blend to keep the bugs off is only right.

My engine smokes enough for both of us!!

No, I stopped smoking 22 years ago (note I never said gave up) and I know beyond any doubt that if I smoke a cigar today, I'll be on 20 a day starting from tomorrow.

Great Memories

Wasted a good cigar while underway on a friend's boat. The wind took all of the aroma away before you could appreciate it. Lesson learned, I do enjoy a cigar at mooring and sometimes just go out to my boat after long day at the office and have a drink and a cigar while watching the sunset.

The best, however, is relaxing with friends, a cigar and drinks after long day of sailing, and good dinner, looking up at the stars, solving the world's problems and sometimes even our own problems, preferably at slip or mooring away from your home port.

I do find that there are less and less people who appreciate a cigar. I don't smoke them often, maybe four times a month during sailing season but it's always more enjoyable when you have company.

Spencer,
I have found that smoking a pipe while underway, while it looks good, its just too labor intensive, you've got to tamp the ashes, clean the stem with a pipe cleaner and most of all the ashes tend to blow in your eyes. When I was in Cuba for three years I came to love the orgional Cuban cigars, BUT, since I can't get them anymore, I have found that the Cohiba ciger is a very good smoke. I haven't tried the dark wrapper one's I might, but they might be too heavy flavored.

Good Luck,

Mike

Scotch and a cigar while at anchor - heck yeah. Especially now that it's starting to cool off in the evenings here in Austin, I like to throw out a line and try to catch a few fish while enjoying.

I'll take one please.

Thank you!

Macanudo and a glass of wine (or beer or rum . . . can't afford cognac) in the cockpit in the early evening is a great time. Never down below. I love a good cigar but hate the ash tray smell coming out of the salon. Yuckkkkkkkkkkk!

Did soneone mention cigars? I have been working a lot and sailing,vso I have been off the board, but I must jump in a cigar thread. Yes, I do enjoy a fine cigar while sailing or just being on the boat.
