Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

I think this is the attitude that got them into trouble in the first place. From what I read in a short perusal of their blog I believe Mrs RH had sailed 1500nm total a couple of months prior to...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

That can be true but is also largely dependent on the complexity of the case so doesn't really matter how right you are.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

It is too bad these cases are attritional with the party with the least resources disadvantaged.

Re: Anchoring

There is that chance but if anchoring directly behnd a boat you will be behind them until a shift in the wind. I consider dropping a few feet either side to be pretty much behind a boat anyway.

Re: Anchoring

My first thought when anchoring is to find a place where my swing radius does not overlap any other boat’s swing radius. It can be difficult in a crowded anchorage but I’ll try even if it means...

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

I would think reliability would be a bigger issue since sat. phones providers do advertise the safety element. If not I would imagine the service would be construed as pointless for most subscribers.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Sure I don't have all the information but if the provider of the service failed in their support I would be none to pleased. These sat. phones are touted as being a safety feature.

Re: Croatia - Quality of Sailing and Charter Options

Did a charter out of Biograd a few years ago and cruised down to Split and back. It is a great area to cruise but expensive though there is a lot of anchorages. I really liked Korcula. Lots of...

Re: high wind gybing technique??

Another safe way to gybe in high winds is to tack. (not sure if that is a chicken gybe)

Re: What boat for a family circumnavigation?

Just to clarify I don't believe the boat I linked is an OI.

Re: What boat for a family circumnavigation?

I think it might be a later type model but I think a lot of the OI are ketch rigged. I have never heard of issues with them but could never be 100%. Don't think it would ever be considered a racer...

Re: Sailing lessons

One of the primary goals of some of the racing I have done was to introduce new people to racing. The whole thing is very social.



It's still very cutthroat though!

Re: Sailing lessons

There are other alternatives like learning to sail on other people's boats. It was how I learned. I did have a mate who was an RYA instructor help me prep for the Yachtmaster. However that was not...

Re: Just Finished ASA 101 - what a blast!

Glad you enjoyed it Nancey. It is good you are furthering your education and I think you will refine your needs for a boat by sailing on other people's boats.

I saw that you placed an advert in...

Re: anchor tips to get it to catch?

Just to clarify TF, I was not surprised or trying to be judgemental. It was just a thought expressed in a way as not to be overly assumptive.

Re: anchor tips to get it to catch?

I have found differences in ground tackle to have a greater bearing then keel design and windage.



I would have thought you would have tried anchoring when you did your charters. Having a...
