Gee, all I did was to search the phone
directory for a guy in Hurum named Gisle. The rest was easy, as he was the only one there. Actually, I fly over his area once in a while – next time maybe I’ll circle his house. We all (?) remember how it was to be young and simultaneously build home, family
, and career. Gisle builds websites, too.
Greatly honoured by promotion to Captain
. This forum takes care of itself, so it will be an easy job: Just weed out what the members decide doesn’t fit in.
The only sailing I’ve done singlehandedly is in a seaplane: When winds get above 20 kts the craft resists turning downwind after landing. Thus the only option is to cut power, lower flaps and sail backwards. Then restart engine
Wonder if it’s ok to start a thread about this type of vessel (“winged multihull”) in the slow section “Cruising Destinations - Polar Regions”, to avoid going off-topic in other threads?
So far I've found 3 aviators here: Troubledour is an experienced private pilot, Gisle told me he once worked towards a floatplane rating, and CSYMan has been a professional seaplane pilot in Alaska
and the Caribbean
The latter placed this link in an aviators’ forum, and I instantly felt at home here. Sitting in front of a PC all day at work, I keep the forum open and occasionally drop in to keep my spirits up. Thanks again Gisle, for establishing this wonderful meeting place.
