Yes, it's a song about the baymen on LI. None of them have raised a sail in quite some time. (Some have stays'ls.) Having been a bayman on LI and knowing the issues, I love the song. The scrolling artwork is beautiful!

Re: Sailing specific songs

Anything by Dayton Colie meets your strict requirements....

Railmeat Waitin' to Party and Skiff Sailing are probably his best efforts.

Stays'ls, I will have to think about that one. I've known quite a few Baymen and do like the song quite a bit. Its fun hearing my stomping grounds in the lyrics. I'm going to consider whether I sneak it in and see if people can find the one that doesn't technically refer to sailing.

I bet most around my neck of the woods don't pick up on it.

Love Dire Straights. One of my favorite bands in the 80's. I'd forgotten they made a sailing song. Good find.

Re: Sailing specific songs

Came across two new ones myself:

Sail on - Bob Seger
Sailing nights - Bob Seger

Seger is an avid sailor and I believe has raced, if not won, the Chicago-Mac race.
