Slip Sailing

I was walking the dock this morning and saw that my neighbors Genoa was full and nicely trimmed. The crew had sailed in a few hours earlier, had trouble with the roller furling and just went to bed and left the sail up.

It was a new one for me.

Methinks the rum ran out, or maybe they are newlyweds.

Re: Slip Sailing

Often see people dock sailing when they put up the sail.

I've seen a few get ripped when catchs on a dock post or cleat but never saw one where the owner went to bed.

Re: Slip Sailing

We saw a 20 something footer the other day sailing at its mooring. The genoa was out, but it looked like the sheets had already torn off and the sail itself was getting caught with each tack and ripping itself free

Re: Slip Sailing

I was dock sailing last weekend, I was trying to work some "bugs" out of the in boom furling, boom angle was way off and making minor angle adjustments is a whole lot easier at the dock. Once made I wanted to make sure the main was furling correctly.

Re: Slip Sailing

You're not doing slip sailing right unless you are under FULL sail I say....
