Round here when we have 30knots of wind we have lots of white caps!

Come on Ramona seas always look calmer on film. I dont think she would go that fast in less breeze anyway.

That's weird, I woulda thought whitecaps were whitecaps, but Stray is right, I went back and looked at some onboard video , and 30kn looks like a balmy 15-20!

OK, a bit prejudiced, but here's one of our yacht (a Bavaria 34 Cruiser) surfing at HIRW.

I just like the way you can almost feel the surge as it takes off on a wave.

Hi Tamble,
i think that was the year I got up there, I was on good old Condor.
she was exciting, when she got going. 83 feet and close on 30 tonnes deserves some respect when it's careening along in a decent blow!

All the vids and tubes are great but.
i have to say that the ones I personally like the most are the ones that I have made myself.
the memories they bring back , of situations good and conditions bad ,sundowners and scwalls.
you just don't get any other way.

Sampson Boat co resto. Massive project.



Adventures of Tarka. Smaller boat adventure in the Caribbean sea at the moment.



Our own Dexport. Keep em coming Vernon, really enjoying these. Often hear about these places to the North but rarely see what it is like.



Latest one I found with Erik who crossed recently the North sea to the Shetlands from Norway for a Viking festival.
Looking forward to the trip to the Faroes in April coming up.

This type of post is like .
I'll see you and raise you.
Mine is better than yours kind of thing, but we get to be introduced to stuff we haven't seen yet.

SMMIRR. We are on the same page plus
From Acorn to Arabella.

Kevin Boothby is the real thing. Engineless circumnavigation.
I will drop in his vid on anchoring , just to let the cats among the pigeons.
Then add his boat boat tour part 1.
If they grab you, so be it.

Kevin Boothby makes a good point about being able to row out an anchor from the boat. Unfortunately I have had to do this with my yacht and several others when they have come adrift from their moorings and run up on sandbars or the beach. It's good to hear his comments about a Delta requiring lots of chain. It's disheartening when recovering yachts to find they have a crappy anchor with lots of chain in the locker or on the bow. I put the anchor in the stern and flake the chain and rope out so it can run out easily in my dinghy. This is done in the lee of the bow, yachts usually come off on windy days! Motor off into the wind and into deep water using all the available rope. With a high holding non plow anchor this is all that's needed in most case in this estuary. Tide rises and boat mostly floats off. Sometimes a tow is needed.
I do not agree with a fishermans anchor as a second anchor, especially if your anchored near other yachts. One fluke is always sticking up and it's not unheard of for other yachts to foul on this obstruction.
I do have a 35 pound fishermans anchor as my letterbox stand. I welded some chain artistically around the shank and had it re galvanised.

Good watch Gary. I like the attitude of sailing without an engine.

Our keel boat for the crewing course at SPYC had no engines and from very first get go we had to sail out of the piers. Kinda nerve racking for the first few goes. Especially with a lot of expensive boats to run into but no mishaps and it made the experience feel like it was as authentic as it could ever be.

A different kind of sailing but a 100 year old wooden craft that can apparently still reach 40 - 50 knots looks like fun. Not a lot of room in that cockpit though!
