Thanks for your comment. I actually raced four times when I was younger. Three of the four times I crewed. The time I skippered I actually enjoyed. I was wondering if I could like to use your comment on a post I did for a blog?I do enjoy racing, but, with absolutely no expectations.
Our Sapphire just wasn't cut from the, "R" cloth, she loves to have a crew aboard adjusting sheets, travelers and vangs but it seems that no matter how much she enjoys the attention she just can't keep up with the group. Probably has something to do with the fact that she is out there on her own, with boats which are cut from the "R" cloth but none the less there are only a couple of rules, we must return with the same number of crew as we left with and we must have a great time and so far we haven't broken those rules.....
Well cruising is a given on our Sapphire as this is where she is truly at home right there with the first mate, but my youngest son has joined the club and with the Soverel 33 I believe, we are not only going to race more, but also be competitive.
Thanks for you comment, especially the quip. I've hit a few docks a little stiff, to be sure. I find this topic to be interesting. I wrote a post on a blog on this very subject. The post got over 40 views, but not one comment.I enjoy both racing and cruising. I grew up with both, my family raced our Niagara 30 and then Viking 33 but also spent many weekends aboard taking it easy. I used to race my C&C27 and really enjoyed the active fleet of one design boats, there are usually around 18 C&C27s registered for racing, 15 or so show up to most races. At one point I decided the additional maintenance and cost of sails to remain competitive wasn't worth it so I started crewing on other people's boats. What really kicked it off was overhearing a conversation on the dock of a C&C115 looking for someone with experience flying a spinnaker so I jumped in.
Now I have a comfortable, slow cruiser that I can enjoy time relaxing on the water in no great hurry. I still race on the C&C115, occasionally on a Viking 28, First 40, First Class 10 and any other boat that will take me. I mostly enjoy long distance races but I still race around the cans on Tuesday evenings. It seems like the best of both worlds to me and racing gets me out on the water more than if I only cruised.
Thanks for commenting. I find racing to chaotic for my liking.Used to enjoy racing my Hobie 16 catamaran and later Hunter 31 and 386. I no longer race, except when on the same tack like Don said, but just cruise.............one reason is I do not want to risk getting my Hunter 46 t-boned..........and many of the boats I have raced with that are on a port tack do not give right away to boats on a starboard tack.
I agree........we were racing my Hunter 386 a few years ago nearing the first mark off of San Francisco during the Jazz Cup in a field of 100+ sailboats when an older sailboat on port tack would not give way so at the last second we tuned away loosing momentum narrowly avoiding a collision. That really soured me on future races.That's what the protest flag is for and the RRS. Someone needs to have a chat with these skippers if this is the case.
