Re: A man tries to 'run' from Florida to Bermuda!

I wish the CG would send these idiots a bill for $25 or 50k and it would stop people from paddling running, swimming across the oceans

Re: Taking my ASA101 and 103 at once

taking the classes the way you are planning is a waste, I'm pretty sure ASA recommends 40-50 hours of sailing before taking 103.

Re: anchor tips to get it to catch?

I'm shocked everyone keeps enabling these two when they have no idea what they are doing, with a baby on-board no less.
