I sold my Mac to a Veterinarian last August. He bought it while we sat in the slip. I said don't you want to see haw it sails? We then took it for a sail and he fell in love with it. It was a great boat.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

As I was going over the list of my thread subscriptions, I noticed this one. I am sincerely surprised how quickly this one died given the trends of others threads here. Moving on I guess..........

Re: Clothing optional sailing

I think the conversation ran itself out. Those who think nudity is silly got their jokes in. Some who do sail naked said so. Next.

Some more stories of nude sailing would have been nice, but whatever.

Winter killed it. I think it just shrank away to nothing in the cold...

Re: Clothing optional sailing

How many boats in any given marina actually sail naked? Some, but probably only a very few. I'm guessing that about the same proportion have already expressed themselves here, with maybe one or two more finding it unnecessary to be public about it.

As I said in a very early reply here, clothing did not originally evolve from modesty. It was for protection and that still applies. I just can't imagine the logic of carrying a knife while sailing, but not wearing pants.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

You could always hang it on a belt or lanyard around your neck but I've rarely needed one in conditions where I was sailing nude. I'm a member of the Gulf Coast Nudist Yacht Club and we sail and raft up every chance we get. Yes, i think clothing definately has it's place as protection from the elements and non skid. lol But nudity just seems a natural fit for boating in general.
