Dude, you've got to learn how to duck dive.
alternate worlds... down the shore
And I also have a story about sailing at Lewes Delaware. Same conditions. Lets see, that's two posts I owe you.
This is where we all miss O Docker the most
BTW: Yo, Mojo! See you before you know it!
Early experiments with foiling proved to be less successful than hoped
See? Ya just yank the daggerboard and she'll leap out of the water and overfly the competition!
I hope that's not the "used World's sail" I just ordered from the DInghy Shop.
"State record sunfish caught barehanded by fishermen after an intense struggle in the surf."
Even though most Sunfish are born in captivity, when young they are spirited and rambunctious. Here, boatboys are trying to "daggerboard" a young Sunfish. Daggerboarding is a necessary first step in training a Sunfish to carry a skipper.
What's your problem? It even got a nice wash just after this pic was taken.
Great stuff everyone. Keep 'em coming.
O Docker went missing in the surf at Lewes?
"The boat tends to round up when sailing to weather . . ."
"Anything you can do with a Sunfish, you can do with a Laser even better"At least I have...
"When sailing in waves, it is important to use subtle body movements to keep the boat in contact with the water..."
"When sailing in strong winds, keep the bow down and do not allow the front of the sail to luff..."
The mind boggles...
"Down, boy, down!"
You'd think at the World's they'd know that the daggerboard goes in from the top...
"Listen Dean, mate, it was you lot that told Larry to use cheaper, safer boats and fewer crew members for the 35th AC.""No worries, Jimmy, I'm just checking below the water line to make sure you haven't made any 'modifications'"R
"The boat really flies when you raise the centerboard . . ."
"It's a good idea to raise the centerboard from time to time to clear weed..."
"One hand for the boat, one hand for the daggerboard... "
Larry and Moe are wishing they had asked Curly to help with launching.
Didn't I tell you to light the rocket *after* I've got in?
