Re: What is your favourite sailing song.

Here's some lyrics from a song I posted in Minnewaska's thread llinked to above. "Southern Cross" by Crosby Stills and Nash. Still my favorite song about sailing.

Got out of town on a boat goin' to Southern Islands
Sailing a reach before a followin' sea
She was makin' for the trades on the outside
And the downhill run to Papeete

Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas
We got eighty feet of the waterline nicely making way
In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you
But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away
