Some how I don’t think Sailing Anarchy is your target audience. Not sure what you will have to offer this demographic but wish you all the best in you attempts to join the sailing fraternityIn this video we cover tacking, and also leaving the dock with our boat under sail, a new experience for us
You're right, this was filmed a while ago and its already painful to look back on. But It will serve as a log to remember for the futureMate appears to have hove to whether the Captain approves or not and is a stubborn little bastard to boot! At least he will get his tea. If it were me, it would be rum and the lash for you!
In all, that video is tough to watch since you don’t have the patience to listen or follow direction. You have youth on your side so that may change, but you might wind up giving your Captain a stress related heart attack.
pS, the Captain wanted both sails on the same side of the boat the way everyone else sails.

Only making videos of the best performances is an option of course, but then it wouldn't be authentic . I want these videos to capture the good and also the bad.Good to hear! I sailed with my Dad for years and we won many races. Sometimes we argued like you guys, but we knew what we were doing and really wanted to do better in the race.
However, he didn’t like to sail for recreation and I hope you guys enjoy your time together. Please only post a video of your best performance, my eyes are going to take some time to heal. I’ll post a video below that shows how to be a real sailor. Many of the regulars here are familiar with it and should skip it, but it is important to watch. Then you will be like us. We’ve all been there.
I did, too, but we never argued. We often discussed tactics but were always able to come to agreement amicably. Those were some wonderful times that I cherish. Damn, I am getting teary....I miss my Dad so much.Good to hear! I sailed with my Dad for years and we won many races. Sometimes we argued like you guys, but we knew what we were doing and really wanted to do better in the race.
Please tell me more. More specifically I'd like to hear about what kind of sunglasses you have found to be the best for sailing.You're right, this was filmed a while ago and its already painful to look back on. But It will serve as a log to remember for the future
I’m asking that same question in a thread I started! Let’s hear what advice is available!!
And maybe a VPN, supplement powder, testosterone replacement, one of those Jackery things and Rolly Tasker sails.
