Smile Re: British Columbia wilderness, sometime in next 3 years, any exp

Thanks. It had left me wondering. I was sailing an unsinkable (though "capsizable") boat. I was on the east side when becalmed. I'm guessing I might still be there still if I hadn't hitched a...

Re: British Columbia wilderness, sometime in next 3 years, any exp

OK. I've been waiting a LONG time for a reply to this. But none has come. Exactly why did he have to be RESCUED?

Re: British Columbia wilderness, sometime in next 3 years, any exp

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

Re: Blue Water School of Sailing - Ft. Lauderdale, FLA

The class may someday save your future boat and you.
