Once on the run from Bangkok to Manila in a C-Mist we would get hit by summer, nighttime squalls arround 10PM. I was ususlly on deck
on watch. With an approaching squall I would bang the bell and get the 2 crew, One male one female, on deck
to reef the gaff main and jibs. Invariably this did not get doen till after the rain began so all of us were drenched. This went on for two nights - on the third night the crew trurned to with out a stitch. I can attest that in a bit of a blow working a gaff main down and reeffing the sails
doesn't leave much room to contemplate the nakid woman standing a foot away. It was smart, no wet and salty clothes in the forepeak. Seemed most natural - Works in the tropics but not in the PNW! Probably not the way to go at a Seattle
Yacht Club regatta! But who would go any way!
