Three Things

Three of my favorite sailing blog posts from the last few days….

Why People Don’t Protest Each Other (and Why They Should) from Damian at The Final Beat.
One of my own personal beefs. The title explains perfectly the topic of this post. And Damian has some excellent suggestions for dealing with the issue.

The fear of sailing from John Vigor's Blog.
I've written a few posts myself over the years about the fear of sailing and how to deal with it, mainly in the context of heavy air sailing in Lasers. John addresses it from the perspective of ocean cruising and discusses why fear makes sailing attractive to some people and what its uses might be.

Top 10 signs it's time to leave the island by Behan on Sailing with Totem.
Absolutely hilarious. Behan and her family are sailing the world on S/V Totem and have been parked in Langkawi in Malaysia for a while. Actually I think they have only been there for a couple of months but you wouldn't guess if you only read this post!

Thanks for these recommendations, Skipper!

You are welcome Doc. All part of the service. No extra charge.

Behan - s/v Totem said...

Thanks for the nod, Tillerman, glad you enjoyed the post! Totem has been in Langkawi, Malaysia for about 11 weeks now, not that I'm counting. OK, maybe I'm counting. ;-) Definitely not used to staying in one spot for so long!

Thanks for the kind words, Tillerman - it may be the first time anyone's ever said that I've made an 'excellent suggestion'.
