Re: Dismasted/1964 Challenger

To each his own.
Sailing, like motorcycling, biking, hiking, kayaking, mountain climbing, and so much more, is an outdoor sport. You don't drag a portable house around for those other activities, why should you for sailing? Like any outdoor activity you dress properly. If you are making long passages in miserable conditions of course you want protection; how many sailors on this forum are doing that? We are going sailing very shortly and I anticipate a good sail with a beautiful view of the mountains and eagles. And like most cool weather sailing days, the beautiful boats with the cozy enclosures will be tied to the dock.
