I am done with sailing

I am done with sailing for this year........we rocked this boat every weekend around lake ontario.....it is a dream come true for me.....my wife on the other hand doesnt like the 7.5 knots or 8.5.....anything over 6 and she starts looking at me with that women look...
we have done alot of recipricals this year and have been treated so nice at every club....it truley is a nice lifestyle.......

I dont think I burned a tank of fuel and we havent even gone through a tank of propane...(and we use the stove alot).......I had nothing break....but I am always spending money on up grades........I am 52 and wondering why it took me so long to find this great hobbie

It has to do with the daily rat race versus soaring with eagles. Once you've learned to soar...

Re: I am done with sailing

Great video.

What's with that full wet weather gear and sun out with no cloud to be seen? Is it icy cold out there or something?

Funny ending! Not sure what you should be paying attention to.. looks beautiful out there, not another vessel in sight...

Yep, so am I. It's getting a bit chilly here in St. John's and I need to pull her out this week.

Re: I am done with sailing

Yes, L Ont is getting a bit chilly now. I think we're done for the year too.

My better half shares the sailing, and after 7 seasons has gained a bit of confidence in me, so that when I'm playing silly buggers with a camera, she simply takes the tiller from me. I still test the limits from time to time

Re: I am done with sailing

I didn't see land, was there something impeding your enjoyment that I missed? Sounds like my ex wife as well. Hawk it up for the kill joy.

Re: I am done with sailing

Good humour and all, but seriously who has the helm here, who is the Captain? Feel free to discuss with her the pros and cons of my long-winded and personal Captain/First Mate/wife relationship-power analysis from this post. Enjoy! : )

Re: I am done with sailing

HaHa pay attention.............last time I heard that was in the middle of an unplanned jibe, grew up sailing out of Frenchman's marina. After you have figured out you need more time onboard, the "left coast" is year round.
