Re: What really is cruising??

Reminds me of the #3 question I always get asked about cruising, after the #1 question about storms and the #2 questions about pirates. #3 = "What do you do to keep busy?"

I always thought that cruising was the opportunity to repair your boat in exotic locations...

I should have made a note that this is courtesy of the SpinSheet FB page (who shared it from the SailorBags FB page).

I liken it to a scavenger hunt on a rollercoaster in the rain, when you haven't showered for 3 days.
