after the storm

We live in interesting times. I’m not sure if that phrase actually is an ancient Oriental curse, but sometimes it sure feels like it. In early September, I watched with a mixture of horror and resignation as Hurricane Dorian first squatted over Grand Bahama until it was levelled and then trundled up the entire southeast coastline of the United States, not heading seaward until it had given Nova Scotia a thorough pasting. The fact that my boat was in its sights for a time—on the hard in northeastern Florida—accounts for the resignation, shortlived though it was. For the people of the Bahamas, the horror lingers on. After Hurricane Irma went across the Virgin Islands and St. Martin two years ago, the destruction was the worst I’d seen from any weather-related event.…

IPAD REVOLUTION Further to Finding the Way (October), I too remember when the GPS revolution began and the naysayers and detractors who poo-pooed the technology. Here we are decades later, and if you don’t have GPS on board your boat, you are considered by your sailing peers to be foolish at best and negligent at worst. I have sensed another, albeit smaller, evolution occurring over the last few years, and I am curious what others think. The large networked multifunction displays (aka chartplotters) are ubiquitous on many sailboats these days, and most new production boats come with this equipment standard. I have used these on many other sailboats over the years, and I have mixed feelings. Overall, I have found them to be a convenient central reference for a lot of useful…

“Focused on racing, dedicated to fun,” says the Wayzata Yacht Club’s website, and its Thursday evening races on Minnesota’s Lake Minnetonka certainly bear that out—up to 130 boats turn out for the 65 races it organizes each year, and the weekly beer can races often attract 100 or more crews. The club keeps it real—most of the boats are 22ft to 25ft keelboats, like the Catalina Capri 25s pictured here doing battle with each other and shifty winds. It also organizes a program of big-boat racing via its Apostle Islands station in Bayfield, Wisconsin. Way to go, Wayzata!…

to sail or nor to sail

You’ve got to know when to hold ‘em Know when to fold ‘em Know when to walk away And know when to run— Kenny Rodgers “The Gambler” When I was young I would unflinchingly go out sailing in anything. Big boat, little boat, alone or with a crowd, it didn’t much matter. Same thing with setting all kinds of sail, weather forecast be damned. Reefing is for wimps! This, of course, resulted in some memorable moments afloat, as well as some equally fun sailing stories back on shore. “Remember that one time when we set the kite and…” Since then, however, I’ve become a good deal more cautious (or maybe “prudent” is the better word). Part of this, I believe, stems from my having had the opportunity to sail aboard a series of…
