It doesn't appear staying in a Holiday Inn Express the night before his sail helped either.



Seriously, sad news.

There are NONE.

People cruising have propper size boats on propper budgets.

It's proper, not propper.

Not looking for a fight but what do you define as a "propper" budget. Going to recommend a law requiring people to have a "propper" budget before the leave the dock?

And while youre at it what's a "propper" size boat?

Re: Very Sad but round the world Really !!!!

A near gale and 15 foot waves are not good conditions for an inexperienced sailor in a new boat. Unfortunately it can take experience to recognise that. A pity his dream came to such an early end.

- Capitalize the first word of a sentence.
- Your use of articles is weak.
- Missing punctuation.

PLEASE CORRECT IT SO I MAY LEARN BY MISTAKES.

What the heck is an article? Never mind it isn't really important to me.

I went on deck and unclipped to push the boom out and as I leant over the rails the main track carrier pin let go and I was on my way. Had the shrouds not been there I'd have been waving the boat goodbye and wondering what the family were having for tea.

Two car life line now on order!

Re: Very Sad but round the world Really !!!!

If we accept the disregard for experience and/or the conventional notion of common sense in this story, we must accept his right to pursue his dreams as he saw fit. Many of us, as modern humans (civilized?), have been so conditioned to live under the yoke of rules, regulations, laws, restrictions, mandates, decrees, codes, dictates, statutes, edicts, canons, ordinances, and prescripts that we have become dulled into complacency, mediocrity and sameness as we march the prescribed sanctioned pathway society has paved for us through life. There was a drummer beating a infectious rhythm, a siren singing an entrancing song and a waft of sea air that he found irresistible. He followed without hesitation. We should all be so lucky in life.

That is a great piece of writing Rognvald.

Problem wasn't the boat. Problem was he fell off.

Not all cruisers have propper(sp) boats, but some sail small boats properly. I have a small boat. The water was blue. I didn't fall off. I didn't see you in any of the anchorages.
