Do you play music whilst sailing?

Just wondered how many of you actually play music whilst sailing and do you have favourite sailing music?

The sea pronounces something, over and over, in a hoarse whisper; I cannot quite make it out..

Re: Do you play music whilst sailing?

I listen to music while at anchor in the evenings but, while actually sailing, all I need is the sound of the wind, waves and the water slipping past my hull. Than and my thoughts are more than enough to get me through even the darkest 0300-0600 watch.

My kids insist on Bohemian Rhapsody if we are off shore... Complete with Wayne's World style accomplishment...

Love the vision of you all head banging as you sail along

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. There are times when it adds to the moment, times when it doesn't.

Most of all ... Your boat, your choice. Doesn't matter what anyone else does or thinks about it.

And they'll turn it down for the cell they know

Took the radio out of the boat-love the sound of the water and the quiet.

I agree... In fact, when I'm doing a delivery with crew, I discourage listening to music on watch, for so often the subtle sounds boats and their gear can produce can be the first sign of something amiss...
