just to go sailing one must first navigate a drying muddy creek for 5 miles at the top of the tide,then face 4-5 knot tidal currents,overfalls,bitter cold winds,drying shoals,fog and lots of traffic!
All you high-latitude sailors are nutters anyway. We low-latitude types on the other hand are merely lazy..

Re: So Ya Wanna Be A Cruiser...

Re: So Ya Wanna Be A Cruiser...

Might have to put Denmark on my summer time list... Summer time is the last 2 weeks in July, right?
