there were no sailing jokes and NO golf songs.
We decided that was because golf is just a game and sailing can actually be dangerous. As we've unfortunately seen you can lose your life sailing.
(and yes you can get hit by lighting while golfing but that's not a normal encounter)

Well lets face it golf songs would all be overly long and very boring but sailing jokes ?

An old sea captain was sitting on a bench near the wharf when a young man walked up and sat down. The young man had spiked hair and each spike was a different color.... green, red, orange, blue, and yellow.
After a while the young man noticed that the captain was staring at him.

"What's the matter old timer, never done anything wild in your life?

The old captain replied, "Got drunk once and married a parrot. I was just wondering if you were my son!"

A pirate walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened, you look terrible!"
"What do you mean?" the pirate replies, "I'm fine."
The bartender says, "But what about that wooden leg? You didn't have that before."
"Well," says the pirate, "We were in a battle at sea and a cannon ball hit my leg but the surgeon fixed me up, and I'm fine, really."
"Yeah," says the bartender, "But what about that hook? Last time I saw you, you had both hands."
"Well," says the pirate, "We were in another battle and we boarded the enemy ship. I was in a sword fight and my hand was cut off but the surgeon fixed me up with this hook, and I feel great, really."
"Oh," says the bartender, "What about that eye patch? Last time you were in here you had both eyes."
"Well," says the pirate, "One day when we were at sea, some birds were flying over the ship. I looked up, and one of them shat in my eye."
"So?" replied the bartender, "what happened? You couldn't have lost an eye just from some bird ****!"
"Well," says the pirate, "I really wasn't used to the hook yet."
sorry .... not really about sailing are they ?

emoney I think this is along the vein of the "Who is afraid of Virginia Wolfe" thingy. If he says it 3 times, then all of our boats will be deemed "blue water capable".....which will in turn, create havoc in the system.

jameswilson29 Nature has captured him and is holding him hostage until he agrees to use the terms "Ready About", and "Helms a'lee", like his grandpa did.

Perhaps we should start a fund for his philosophical rehabilitation? After all, sailors have always helped fellow sailors, no matter how far off the deep end they have sailed...

CalebD "Ready about" or "Jibe ho" do it for me.
Everyone on board should know what to expect from the helmsman (person).
I don't like it when a skipper decides to change tacks without announcing to the crew what he/she is anticipating and expects them all to be mind readers. The whole point of crewing a boat is so that everyone acts in concert. Surprises are not what make it work but the crew working in concert does make it work smoothly.
"Ready about" is more of a question to the crew on the lazy and windward sheets to make them aware that a course change is intended and action on their part is required. "Hard to lee" means that the helm has been put hard over.
Transcend that.
