I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

So basically, a huge risk to take if you decide to sail if you see one of these...Or if you see one while sailing, the idea is to sail away from it and run for cover...
Yeah man, in the States we call that a Roll cloud. It marks the gust front of a severe thunderstorm - the leading edge of the forward-flank-downdraft of cold, dry outflow air in the front of a thunderstorm. This is that first cool dry gust you feel when a normal thunderstorm approaches. In a big'n, it's powerful. Cold dry air being more dense, it "shovels" warm moist air up into the storm. That air, in addition to feeding the storm, condenses when it gets lifted and turns into that ominous line. In a microburst under there, straight line winds can exceed 100mph. I've been chasing storms on the Plains for 15+ years and I've never seen one that perfect. That is AWESOME. Unless you're stuck under it in a boat I guess.

These pics are all absolutely incredible. Thanks everyone for posting! I already plan to make it as far north as the San Juans this summer... looks like next summer I may have to shoot for Desolation!

Crossing Wide Bay Bar in Queensland, Australia, on our beautiful little boat with my wife and daughter. It was a magic morning and we were crossing in company with about 6 other boats, these photo was taken from a friends boat.

One of my favorite and happy times on the boat -


Leisurely coming about Plum Gut, Long Island -




Approaching Hell's Gate, East River, NY


A Day sail around Lady Liberty -


A welcoming sight coming back to port -


My own little Portugal trip pics:
The Bico, located in Murtosa, Portugal. Sight where many launched their boats to fish or get seaweed for fertilizing the fields.


Old Style fishing boats still in use:

Rounding Cape Horn


In the early afternoon of 02 February 2012 we rounded Cape Horn east to west, and at 1300 we turned and rounded it west to east. My wife Edi shot this as we were due south of the Horn for our second time.
