Re: I created an app to help sailing beginners with the basics!

I have an Android phone, win 7 desktop and a win8.1 tablet.

Re: Winching power for MOB

Re: Sailing Watch

As I sail a lot of OPBs, I insist on a watch with a barometer. I have a Suunto Yachtsman that was purchased at Costco.

Re: Wing n Wing

I sail on a broad reach. It is safer, more comfortable and faster. The VMG is also probably higher.

Re: Most efficient 180 degree turn

Re: Most efficient 180 degree turn

If the wind is on the stern, forcing the bow up into the wind will be tough.

I would just crank the wheel over. I will turn in 1.5 boat lengths.

Re: Really? Oregon, really?

Your assessment of the inside is correct.

The outside can quite benign, but it can also be especially nasty. Strong SE or NW winds can make the area from the Brooks Peninsula to Estevan Point...

Re: Really? Oregon, really?

I have done it in two weeks. But I have also turned back three times, twice for weather, one for an alternator failure. The hard part is actually the inside.
