Boys day out... (pic heavy)

DANGER TRIMARAN OWNERS... THESE PICS HAVE VERY HIGH WIND SPEEDS ASSOCIATED WITH THEM. IT WILL FRIGHTEN YOU. READ WITH CAUTION. DO NOT BE FOOLED BECAUSE I HAVE A 5 & 8 YEAR OLDS SAILING IN THIS WEATHER. THEY ARE PROFESSIONALS. DO NOT TRY THIS ON YOUR BOAT!! (this is a joke with me and SD so don't take offense others).

For the first time ever, me and the kiddos went out for the weekend together. Mom and dad were out of town and Kris had a baby shower for her sister (which prompted me getting all household members with a Y chromosome as far away as possible, as quick as possible).

It was blowing pretty good. We had fairly constant mid to upper 20's and raining periodically.





It was pretty scary. The kids were really frightened as you can see...





But we take our heavy weather sailing seriously. We run a serious, military stye boat...




We went through steering through the waves/weather and easy ways to trim the sails in heavy weather...





Not bad for a 5 or 8 yo, eh?? It was a great time for all, me especially. For you other dad's out there, if you can get some time just you and your kids on the water, they won't forget it. This will become somthign much more regular for us.

See ya!!! (happy dad pic to follow):

Don't know about the high wind speeds but this scared the hell out of me.

Should I be concerned with wind speeds over 25? From your comments, it sounds like I should. We were out in 35k last summer and seemed to do fine. The 40 gust was a bit of an eye opener and we finally shortened sail a bit. Should I be more concerned? With what?

Nice Brian. The boys are at ease on the boat and having a lot of fun. Good for you. Boys weekend = Tons of Fun.

Great pictures. NOthing better than spending the day with your boys together on the water. Remember it forever and takes lots of pictures like these to preserve the memories (and maybe to blackmail them also when they are grown)

Ah, isn't that nice. The boys got Dad away from the dock. It's a good think they were able to control Brian.

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.
