Re: Your sailing "must have".

My must have is Cate.

The rest I can either fudge or get away with improvising something, or do without if need be..

Re: Your sailing "must have".

Good solid, easy to deploy in a hurry, ground tackle.

Binoculars.

Foulies.

Rum &or Beer. (though a really good cuppa REAL British tea is just as good)

If the above are present and in good order I don't need anything else.

Re: Your sailing "must have".

A Windex at the masthead. When sailing in sight of land I'd much rather have it than a compass.

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.

Yeah, I sailed for a year without one and without telltales on my sails. I was hoping I would develop an innate "feel" for the perfect wind angle. Crap. Absolute crap. Now I happily stare at the windex and woolies all the time while sailing. Makes for a stiff neck sometimes but I sure go up wind better....

Re: Your sailing "must have".

Sunglasses. I forgot sunglasses. They're definitely my #1 item. I won't ever go sailing without them, even in the winter. Sensitive eyes I guess.
