Lucky me! The dock is just behind the apartment complex. I look out the window, see a breeze in the trees and on Medicine Lake, call a friend, and be ready to go before they show up with breakfast! I'm also the only sailboat at dock so they let me have the end where I can easily dock from either direction instead of entering a slip. I think I'm spoiled with my first sailboat!

Bump.

There's a good thread on this that someone just bumped, but the poll result here are so revealing that I thought I'd bump this too.

Regards,
Brad

Although we are just over an hour away from our slip, it is not a long distance relative to our typical work commutes. But there is a glimmer of the work commute ending in a few more years with the free time expanding - and the grandkids could spend more time with us...

Just spent over a week on the boat. That was excellent. 0 feet away from the boat. We did some sailing too.

Regards,
Brad

We live about 2 1/4 hours from our boat. However, our boat is at the dock of our vacation house so when we are there, it's only minutes!

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

We are members of two yacht clubs.
Our current yacht, a 23foot Windrush Wildfire trailer sailer, is kept 5 minutes drive from home at The Cruising Yacht Club of Western Australia.
Our previous boat, a Sparkman & Stephens 34, was kept 35 minutes drive away, at Fremantle Sailing Club.

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

In the summer she's on a trailer mast up at the Marina ready to sail, 2 hrs away...

In the winter she's in the barn mast down ready to work on 2 minutes away....
