I'm not a get naked kind of guy but there is something pleasant about it.

I am sailing solo and are well clear of other boats so I will not be making anyone violently illl

I like that..."tackle out". That is too funny. Enjoy your sail. I'm hoping to be out there this afternoon.

Re: Naked Sailing - Truth or Wishful Thinking ?

Nothing like feeling the wind all over and being one with nature. Sadly, the temp is cooling off and had to wear a shirt late in the day. Gotta get a change in latitude soon.

Welcome to the CF, ctsunsailor

Interesting if this reviving of the old, and once so popular, thread will be successful?

Where do you put the sunscreen and how often must you apply it? Is it better to have some one else apply it instead?

Applying the sunscreen is a great art, to be practised devoutely, before achieving the really outstanding results.
I prefer to do it personally, caring dearly for the protection of my crew.
As You understand any decrements or depletions should be filled up as soon as possibly, with utmost care

No I lost that a few weeks ago I guess. Maybe some one complained I don't know. Funny thing is it was one theirs I grabbed when I signed up for this site.

Remember also about the boat. 50 + ft is just great both for stocking the sunscreen and for reservation of convenient deck areas to apply it successfully

Of course there is possibility to agree on smaller crew to be sunscreened, but this may be considered a waste of opportunities

It's all true. I personally have an all over tan, and as I sail in the tropics I keep it. No red buns for me!

I can see... whole sunscreen applying exercise may be rather pointless after such an accident.

On the other hand - did it help to improve Your singing abilities? High C???
