Kimberlite...great log entry. I've always admired the Amel's seaworthiness. Hope you're having fun in the sun now!
Cam I never read the book!!! I go sailing and watch the movie later......

Giulietta Sail,

Yes, that is exactly what I meant!!!Thank you for the help.

Crazy maybe, stupid, not at all. Besides I would never thake my son, and his best friend to sea, if we were not on top of it.

I think its also good for everyone, first, we exposed the kid (remember he sails on his own most of the time), to a "different" condition from what he is used. Think of it as a lion teachig the puppy how to hunt. (his friend too, and his father a long time sailor was there too)
By teaching him foul weather sailing, and making him BE THERE, it will make a better sailor out of him, just in case, God forbids he might need it one day.

Second, it exposes us to it, so we get "trained" should we also need it some day.

But in the end, we were in control at all times. That is the key item here. Once it got "ugly" we returned. No big deal.

Besides, this morning, while we were taking the morning shower, he said it was one of the best days at sea he had, he hugged me and said he loved it. For this only its worth it.

sailaway21 Giu,
If we didn't think you were crazy we wouldn't like you so much. Perhaps you meant to say, "I'm not stupid"?

Cam, what we did is called controled risk.

As long as you know the boundaries, the limits (yours, the crew and boat's), and what the weather is and will do, then it can be fun. And it was.

Winds were blowing from the South, towards land, a rare thing here.

Another boat a smaller Jeanneau 26 went out too, for about 1/2 hour, and they also had fun.

Believe me it was controlled risk, let me rest you assured that I am not crazy, ok?? Just been in these waters for more than 20 years
