Very true... that doesn't necessarily mean the missus would agree though.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Oh, no - it this time of the year now: fridge, dodger, anchor, cruising sails...
Tomaz, Fred and Luis have allways sailed since they were born, so heeling, waves, wind etc. are part of their daily lives..Fred moves around and lives as if heel didn't exist..and it's funny, when I compare my kids behavior on a boat with other kids that started sailing later..when the heeling becomes excessive, they tendo to freeze and hold on, while Fred, just changes his body angle..He has slept solid for 4 or 5 hours while we crossed the cape, and didn't even wake up...he showers, washes his teeth, eats, sleeps, as if heel wasn't there..it's pretty amazing.



He also doesn't mind the odd tasks..like washing the spreaders..at 15 meters above deck


As for the rail...there are times and times, summer is summer, fun and games..

ehehehe you know that winch holder became HIS milk bottle placement..funny you noticed it..how we adapt to the kids..amazing it is..thanks for noting it..made my day, really.





Also..once they come on board, the whole thing changes..the sofa seats get covered...and milk cartons are now a priority, instead of what spi are we bringing..

Giu,

Great pictures!! What do you use for the table cover. Anything special so it won't slip off the table? Or is it just a piece of cotton cloth?

Also, why do you have to wask the spreaders? Maybe it's to get the seagull poop off, to lighten the boat. Or maybe this is an excuse to keep your son in practice.

Bene, yes, that is a marinized table cloth that was bought in the marina, and underneath has a rubberized finish so it will not slide. The upperside is covered with a silicone like rubber clear film, but the cloth is actual cloth, just has "plastic" or rubber films applied to it..I don't know hwo to call it.

I don't understand what is wask. is it the swept back you are asking?
thanks

ahahahah wash...ok...they had dust....dust spoils the wind efficiency(ehehehe)...

Really, I wash them, because they are CF and may get damaged. Also that particular day, he also swept them back a little more, because I increased rake a touch.

I love how fast you are going in that one picture. I guess you'll have to "school" us on how you do it.

OK, I decided to edit things a bit. I still can't get over your real 15+ knot speed.
