I was going to say Pete - man the fun police over at Bayswater would have had a field day over sailing in the marina. Impressive knowing where your berth is!!

We sail in and out of the marina quite often, though my slip can be tricky because of the hard right I need to make when leaving. I think our yard owner prefers people doing it (even suggesting to people they do it). He is one of the old fashioned types that think sailboats are for sailing though.

Fortunately it was after hours so only the security guy saw me and he's pretty cool. For once the tide helped me and I was able to drift back into the berth after furling.

I'm always vaguely disquieted by the no sailing signs at Gulf Harbour, I'm a lot more comfortable with the sails up that close to a breakwater.

Chewed up and spat out

Did that myself a little while back. Always pay to have some wet wipes to clean the undies up afterwards.

NoTies, good for you. Welcome to the club. No better feeling than the confidence to know, rather than hope, that when your engine fails and you have to sail in, it will not be a problem.

Thanks Kai. It's so nice to be readily accepted with my new username.
Is this what people feel after "gender re-assignmant"?

I could just picture in my mind now, the face of the skipper of San Nikau as he rounded Cullins point and was greated by me with my sails up in that channel.
(sorry folks, only Pete is going to get this one)
It's not going to happen though. I'm not that good a sailor.

Yep, that would be scary. What would happen if you met Innovator?
