Re: Clothing optional sailing

Clothing was not originally invented to provide cultural modesty. It was useful to protect the skin and some other organs in the process. I mean, I routinely get pockets and belt loops caught on the boat. Catching something more permanently attached does not seem wise.

But, to each their own.

Suit yourself.
Doing first aid on 'that stuff' isnt 'fun', besides looking at all that cellulite gets old after a while.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

I am thinking that most sailboats are like most nude beaches in that the people on board are usually not the type you want to see naked.

SD to Catalina is a long sail,most likely two days. You want to leave from Long Beach. I belong to a club up there and could wear my kilt, but don't want to scare the children.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

I wouldn't sail naked for many reasons, the most important of which is "I don't look good naked anymore." There's a song about that very subject.


Cheers,

Why would anyone put a cleat there anyway ??? Serves the kinky bugger right.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

After a while it just feels natural, you even forget about wearing clothes, sometimes when I get off the boat and walk down the pier I hear people scream and well...
