Re: Who'd be your ideal sailing companion?

I'll second significant other as choice #1!

After that anyone with any experience who is actually askable for a second time and turns up when they say they will.

She sails, she's smart and she's a lot of fun otherwise.

Re: Who'd be your ideal sailing companion?

Boo

And a dog to be named later.

Nahh, The Australian male swim team. Wearing as little as humanly possible.

Re: Who'd be your ideal sailing companion?

Surely the list has to start with a list of priorities>

1. Friend
2. Companion
3. Sailing ability
4. Lover
5. Soul mate (I wish)
