CalebD will become famous soon enough
"Ready about" or "Jibe ho" do it for me.
Everyone on board should know what to expect from the helmsman (person).
I don't like it when a skipper decides to change tacks without announcing to the crew what he/she is anticipating and expects them all to be mind readers. The whole point of crewing a boat is so that everyone acts in concert. Surprises are not what make it work but the crew working in concert does make it work smoothly.
"Ready about" is more of a question to the crew on the lazy and windward sheets to make them aware that a course change is intended and action on their part is required. "Hard to lee" means that the helm has been put hard over.
Transcend that.

Sailing; The fine art of getting wet and becoming ill while slowly going nowhere at great expense. What a JOY!!

Okay - now it's just getting weird. Is this like the "Mantric Chant" thread?

Nature has captured him and is holding him hostage until he agrees to use the terms "Ready About", and "Helms a'lee", like his grandpa did.

Perhaps we should start a fund for his philosophical rehabilitation? After all, sailors have always helped fellow sailors, no matter how far off the deep end they have sailed...

I think this is along the vein of the "Who is afraid of Virginia Wolfe" thingy. If he says it 3 times, then all of our boats will be deemed "blue water capable".....which will in turn, create havoc in the system.

We decided that was because golf is just a game and sailing can actually be dangerous. As we've unfortunately seen you can lose your life sailing.



(and yes you can get hit by lighting while golfing but that's not a normal encounter)
