Re: Clothing optional sailing

Re: Clothing optional sailing

Tarzan carried a knife. Then again, he did cover his package - although that's probably to ensure the kiddies watching the movie don't ask too many questions.

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Welcome! As much as I love sailing here on the Florida Panhandle, I really miss the majesty that comes with Puget Sounds sailing.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

This past Fall I managed to shirtless and shoeless, too - even so bold as to go without socks, all while wearing...gulp...shorts! I felt so vulnerable!

Then again, I don't have a tan to worry...

1st Onboard Sailnet App Check-in

I'm taking Fairweather (25 ft Catalina) out on Pensacola Bay, under the 3-Mile Bridge to enjoy a super sunny day. Thought I'd test out the app on iPhone. My bucket list is now complete.

Cool Re: Don't need no lessons..just go..

Re: Too Much, Too Soon?
