Wife's New Dream

So as a follow-up up to her dingy ride down a ski sloop dream a couple of weeks ago...............this weekend my wife had a dream where she is on the boat by herself and is close hauled in 25 knot wind sailing down the highway yelling at people to get out of her way because she can not stop!

Sometimes I wonder if I should worry!

Ha! I love it. Tell her not to worry about the other traffic, but do watch for the overpasses.

Is she on starboard tack? Guess it doesn't matter anyway since she is under sail she would still have the right of way over a vessel under power.

Not right - in a traffic separation scheme sailboats are not to impede PDVs following the scheme.

Well, you can thank your lucky stars it wasn't a dream of... Water water everywhere... not a drop to drink. EEEEK!

Or Hurricane sailing... Perrish the thought!

That's one of the unspoken problems with sailing - sailboats don't stop very well by themselves.
