The perfect Sailing Song

Ok, I''m preparing for my maiden voyage as a captain of my own boat. I''ve finished installing a CD player and after anchoring I''d like some nice tunes. Other than the oldie Goldie "Sailing" by Christopher Cross, what songs capture the perfect afternoon sailing. Just curious what the opinions are. My second choice would probably be Jimmy Buffett.

Possible candidates:

"Cool Change" by the Little River Band; "Southern Cross" by Crosby, Stills, and Nash; "Banana Republic" by Jimmy Buffett

Glad to see you''re almost there...

Problem I have is that, no matter what time it is, I start listening to Buffett, Windwood & Taylor and it''s "Sails up! We''re outta here"!

Forget all of that syrupy stuff about sailing, just get several Sting CDs and you''re good to go!

Dennis,
That syrupy stuff can be fun...when spread evenly over the body.

Hey Denr........seems that the syrup is now in your court........so to speak. (Envisioning Denr reaching for a Yanni CD now, or maybe Douglas Spotted Eagle and his Indian flute?????)

Is it spring yet?

Syrup is for pancakes and waffles, not sailing. Are you implying that Sting is in the same catagory as Yani?? Those are fighting words!

Nope, Denr.........never meant to compare Sting to "Yawni." So you can calm down, play something quiet, and have your syrup applied the way you want it, where you want it. (And don''t forget the Sailkote chaser.)

How many more months of this kind of exchange do we have until spring launch???????? I''d rather talk about wheel vs. tiller, or hank on vs. roller furling.
