when I am expecting to do a lot of short tacking - or when the wind is light - sailing on the Broads for instance - then I will revert to a single sheet

but this keeps life simple and quiet

Re: when sailing makes you cry

Dylan,
There is nothing intrinsically sad about that video. It is the music that might be construed as bitter sweet or melancholy.
It is really rather sweet the way you tacked yourself and your bilge keeler into that little creek. There is a lot to be said about little shallow draft boats that can do this kind of exploring. I have a little 14' center board boat I've done similar excursions with.

It was a bit of a misty/moisty sort of place

sweet is an odd word to use

but it is a long way from seven blokes clining to the windward rail while a racing yacht surges along at 12 knots that is for sure

I'm thinking when the sail is over and wishing for the next day out on the water.

In 2005, after thirty five years of dreaming of having one, he drove half way across the country to pick up his new to him Lugger.

The following years were met with various difficulties for him and in 2009, he started having a fever for reasons his doctor couldn't figure out. In 2010, a man I always knew as ten feet tall and bullet proof succumbed to cancer. He never had taken the Lugger out. Thirty five years of dreaming of her teak rails and classic lines, he never got to experience her.

About 8 months later, I sat on the back porch staring at this Lugger in my yard with her title in hand, now in my name. She was rough around the edges but I admired her lines. She needed a lot of sanding, her spars refinished, some canvas patched, some lines replaced.
I wasn't sure if I was going to keep her or sell her. I had come across the pamphlets Dad had collected and kept and learned he never took the helm of her. To hell with that, and I pushed myself up out of my chair.

I sanded and repaired her then worked with some people overseas through email to figure out her rigging. She was bright and gleaming, ready to go at a moment's notice.
I made sure the bottle of wine was onboard before I slipped her into the water for the first time. I shoved off and hoisted all three sails. The tanbark sails filled with a breeze and her bow sliced through the water.

With tears in my eyes, I toasted the heavens, "For you, Dad."
Great sublime!

Re: when sailing makes you cry

And the water depth there had to be between 2' and 3' feet.

I am lachrymose just thinking about it.

Boo hoo.

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.
