Sharing the Stoke

After having my boat for about a year now and spending lots of time troubleshooting, tinkering with, fixing things and generally sinking too much money on the thing ..... I was stoked about this and thought I would share.

I got to take it out and spend the first night on the hook. It was very light air and a full moon so sailing at night was very enjoyable. I dropped the hook, got the boat tidy and then settled in to cook a nice dinner, have some wine and enjoy some good company. I didn't sleep a wink and got up early and sailed back the next morning and thoroughly enjoyed every second.

It wasn't a challenging sail or anchorage, but its really hard to not yell 'hell yeah'! I can't wait to go again. It may be a humble adventure by many of your standards but it was a great time nonetheless.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Congrats! It must feel great to get away like that. Only you and the wind and water, peace all around you...ah, the good life.

The other night, I slept on my boat for the first time too! But I stayed on the dock. I didn't plan on it, I was possibly a little inebriated, and it was the closest thing. But I must say, I cracked my forward hatch and the wind circulated air through the cabin and damn it was just nice. The boat rocked me to bed like a little baby. Eventually I will get away from the dock, but just my short story for now.
