jackdale will become famous soon enough
My favourite quote is the one in my signature, but it is from a book.

I am going against type on this one. But it is very descrpitive.

Quote:
"You have shortened sail just a little, because you want more steadiness than you are going to get at this speed, the wind up to twenty-two, twenty-four knots, and it is late at night, and there are only two of you in the cockpit. You are moving at racing speed, parting the buttery sea as with a scalpel, and waters roar by, themselves exuberantly subdued by your powers to command your way through them. Triumphalism ... and the stars also seem to be singing together for joy."

You will appreciate the irony.

William F. Buckley; he wrote some great sailing books.

Been a little quiet.

This might liven things up, who said:
