Any sailing pressies under the tree?
This is my annual check on who's getting what sailing goodies under the tree. Previous years have included notes of new knives to complete new engines.

This year I received the latest version of Heavy Weather Sailing by Peter Bruce. I have a copy of the original 1967 version by K. Adlard Coles, but I believe only about 1.5 chapters remain the same.

Another boat present-- pre-purchased tickets for two trips and cleans at the local SeaLift2, including one with a cut and wax of the topsides.

So, anyone else score some sailing-related gifts this year?

I got a sextant. Now what do I do with it.

EDIT: I think it's a toy, or for display. It's a 6" Ross London.
