I was unfamiliar with leeboards until my brother tried to explain to me (over the phone) what they were, and why the sailing pram he built had them. I had to look it up. Today I was reminded of that conversation (this was on a canal in Amsterdam):

Apparently they are not uncommon on large vessels here:

And I finally found a sailboat under way (the building in the background is the Filmmuseum):

Headed out through the Dog River Bridge in a Potter 19. A great day on the bay spent sailing at the speed of smell.


A spinnaker the size of Texas would have been nice about now.

A couple of the locals came by to see if we were ok. They said they'd never seen a boat moving that slow that wasn't in distress.
