    From England to Ireland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium and France.
    From Spain to Morocco.
    From the mainland of Canada to Vancouver Island.

    That's about it, I think. Good idea for a thread. I think we have some well traveled sailors among us. This should prove interesting.

    Ok now I am confused again. Are we having an off topic conversation or is this a new thread that should be connected to the previous conversation or should it stand alone? Time for super moderators to come to the rescue! Also all of you sailors out there....where are you or are you as confused about this as me? Thanks for ANY help sorting this out!

    I am quite often up s$^%'s creek without a paddle. Does that count?

    I am planning to sail to Narnia in the fall.

    I am or shall I say was a sailor! I crewed on a boat called, "Diamond Girl," with simple tasks many years ago!!

    There is a great app that I use called, "YellowBrick," that tracks races. I used this quite a bit with several Races around Michigan.

    Here's a screen shot of sample race that is going on now...somewhere, not Michigan. We don't have any races now...it's too cold still!

    Did you just enter for the racing and excitement of that or did you also do some pleasure sailing?

    We did some half day cruises when we weren't racing. Many of our races were day races only, so I didn't have to worry about taking night shifts or swapping out a bunk other someone else. Since those races, I find I am better off on land than on a boat. My husband is still an avid racer and does quite a few in the summer!!

    Here is the current races listed for YellowBrick now:

    WOW that. Is impressive! I learned how to sail ( actually took a course ) when I was going to University. Did little bits here and there, my. Brother had a Sabot and we used to take a picnic lunch, a bottle of wine and just meander around! That was a blast. Then the sailing lessons to belong to some club I didn't care about. I was moving fast and furious because. I had a premonition since I was 3 yrs old that I had better do everything I wanted to by the time I was 30 because at thirty I would either be dead or my life would be so dramatically altered I would never get another chance. My first trip was the summer I graduated from UBC and I went to Greece, just hanging out, did some boating on other people's boats, no effort required! Came home because a war broke out between Greece and Turkey over Cyprus! Got the LAST plane out! All transportation was appropriated for Military use only! So, I came back to Vancouver......next installation when I am not so preoccupied. ot to get back to the boats!!
