Aloha Mike,
Welcome aboard!! Hope you'll take the time to explain something about yourself. As in any forum or email correspondence, using capitalized letters is considered shouting and to some is a bit rude.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Aha, now that you identified yourself we can say welcome aboard..

Where in Israel do you sail?
I have walked the docks at some of the marinas in Tel Aviv, but never sailed there.
How is the sailing? Good steady wind all the time?
Where do you sail to?

we sail to AKKO and Tantura---2 old ports 4000 years old... and we sail to Cyprus, Greece and Turkey. I sail every week 3 times in any weather. winter is rough, but summer is mild 12 to 15 kn wind, north westerlies..

Turkey is a paradise for sailing, but anchoring at night is a problem...we drag and drag with 2 anchors out...

Mike

Aloha Again Capn Mike,
Many years ago I sailed into and anchored twice in Haifa (on a U. S. Navy Cruiser). It was around Christmas. Of course, not a big celebration for Israelis. I liked the city and the people were friendly.
A nice place.
Hope your sailing is pleasant.
kind Regards,
JohnL

Aloha Mike,
I've been sailing '72 and have been on big ships since '63. I retired from the Navy in '91.
I've sailed in lots of different boats from 8' to 46' and have a boat project, a 42' Cascade Cutter. Our sailing/yacht club has several small boats to 26' International Folkboat which is my current favorite. My sailing experience includes lakes in Europe and the U. S., the Philippines, Caribbean, the Chesapeake, U. S. San Diego and Puget Sound and Hawaiian Islands with a Pacific crossing. I've taught sailing since 1976. Currently I've been doing sailing in Hilo Bay, Hawaii and some interisland sailing here in Hawaii. The weather is always warm and the winds brisk in the channels.
Hope you can get back on the water soon.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Sailing finally

Not much this year for the CSY Man:

Had some periods of bad weather on my OFF days, and 2 months on the beach with a broken foot.

Trying to leave the dock this coming Tuesday: Planning to sail from Ft. Lauderdale to Miami, then the next day to Bimini in the Bahamas Islands.

We have done the same trip many times before and it is like entering a time warp, but in a positive way:

Florida is organized, modern and very populated. Bimini is small third world island where nothing has happened for the last few hundred years.

I would like to live in a place like that, but wifey says no, she likes her air condition and TV and other modern luxuries.

There is an old saying in the US:

If mama ain't happy, nobody ain't happy.

(If the woman is not pleased, she will make it miserable for everybody around her.)

Hopefully I will have good report after we are back from sailing.

Cheers.

CSY man

we sail to Cyprus, Greece, Turkey and along the Israeli coast. never a dull moment. weather is kind, so are the people. my wife takes the plane to the port were I stay...I can never bring along a girlfiend.. all for the better, out of trouble. having sailed for 60 years now... there is still one problem: when it blows we always drag. I have tried all the anchors..no luck. they still have to invent the right one.. Mike . no drill...

hey there migot,

just curious... what is the bottom like where you always try to anchor? soft? rocks? how deep? is it possible to swim down the anchors and place them in structure, or is it too deep? again... just curious.

welcome and look forward to hearing more of your ventures from Israel. my mother and sister live in Jerusalem in the old city- Armenian Qtr.

Thumbs up I have tried all the anchors..no luck.

Just to let you know, Mike... I got your message. I am drawing up a new anchor design as I type this message. Don't think I'm joking on this one, buddy. If the Rangers taught me one thing, it's that ANYTHING is possible if you can put the brain-juice to it. I'll give you 50% profit if you market the thing...whaddayasay?
