Sounds like a good reason to avoid those spots. There are strict physical requirements for nudity aboard my boat.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

Ha! My equipment isn't big enough to get caught on a cleat! LOL Hey, comes in handy riding the sport bike!

I always point out to guests that the #1 buoy at Clearwater Pass is the clothing optional line. I only disrobe if the guest does.

Back in the day I raced on a local boat named "Acquittal," yeah, owner was an attorney. One of the crew, Lenni Belle, was our secret weapon in close quarters. We'd send her up on the foredeck topless. This was before boob jobs were everywhere and LB was naturally endowed with spectacular breasts. Heh Heh, good times.

@MedSailor, I don't particular see it either the way you say. Personally, I do enjoy the nude beach, the nude time at the pool or hot tub, and the sailing nude if I care. Outside of that, I personally don't see myself making an effort to be nude. I guess it is the definition of "clothing optional".

Now I have been to one totally nude beach (not specifically a nude one just an isolated one in Corsica and everyone seemed to be nude) and it was a supermodel fest, but it was all a bunch of college students. I have been to one "nudest" event and I would say it leaned far to the side that you wished they had clothes on side. On the beach I learned one lesson about nude beaches, sun block is very important! Places that had never seen the sun in 22 (then) years were brutally attacked by the sun! Oh that was a long time ago, and quite a bit of fun!

It's known among nudists as "Adams Nightmare."

You'd love it down here on the Florida Panhandle.

I was sweating my rear end off last weekend out on Pensacola Bay.

Gonna be in the 70's this weekend, too.

Of course, the appearance of a stark naked fellow out on the Bay would be frowned upon in this community.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

We're renaming our new boat the same as our old boat...Nauti Time. How about Full Moon?
