    RS CAT 14 Sail Camping

    Hi, Norssail, Good to hear from you. If you sail at Marconi Cove we may have already met? Email me at eyeper@sbcglobal.net and we'll talk more. (that photo of Laser camp is up at White Gulch - across the Bay from Nicks Cove.

    Here's my personal journal from one Laser camp.... Sail Camp 2008.doc

    RS CAT 14 Sail Camping

    Here's how I carry the full camp load on the Laser. The main heavy bag rides nice in front of the mast. I was also able to tow my SUP.

    That's a good bug solution, DTA! Looks a lot like my shelter: North Face "Bullfrog" tent that has served me in some of the worst weather and bugs all over the lower 48 and Alaska.

    DTA has me pumped for Laser-camping again, and it made me think of this old post I had made, after using my boat as an SUV..... Laser as SUV.pdf

    Good job! I have Laser-camped quite a few times here in No. California. Planning to do it again next month. And I'm lucky - NO mosquitoes or lighting storms here...

    Where's "DTA" at?

    Our brave soul with the Laser, Aero, and a new RS and lots of videos... Are you still sailing, man?

    Square heads

    I've been using one of Intensity's "Power Head" square-top Laser sails for a couple of years now and love it. Shape holds up and has plenty of power.

    Which way the wind blows

    I must be "that old guy." In 40 years of sailing (almost all of it in my Laser) I don't even like yarn. My ears are perfectly good wind instruments, with a little bit of help from the eyes to see puffs, and keep track of the mainsail luff.
  10. Gouv, If you still have any "Cheat the nursing home...." stickers, I'd love one! My old Landcruiser has a "LASER" plate, and the sticker would go good. My email address is eyeper@sbcglobal.net so we can do this off the forum (which is now featuring a lot of good music!) - Dennis

    RS Aero - Bay Area California

    Tillerman, I think you explain it in words very well! And I'll wager that if I ever lift one (my Laser is getting heavier the older I get!) or sail one, my resistance will fade. Just like how I resisted buying a certain watch for many years - now that I own one, I'll never go back to another. - here's to keeping an open mind.

    That's a great rule (recovery zone) that I also follow when solo sailing in big wind at Tomales Bay, CA.

    RS Aero - Bay Area California

    Hi, Ben, So far, I have resisted the Aero. The more I look at them and consider the slight speed advantage vs the Laser, the more I continue my retro love of how a Laser looks more like a little yacht instead of a spacecraft. Now I know that's silly, but after my 36-year relationship with the boat, I think I'll keep her. (not saying I wouldn't pass up a test drive in an Aero, though!) Yes, I sail at Tomales Bay often, so if you ever plan to be there email me (eyeper@sbcglobal.net). Good chance I'll be out there tomorrow. Dennis
