Our posting king has been very quiet of late, one wonders what bit of
water he has been frequenting and where he has been sampling bacon
butties… Any sightings?

Perhaps he's fed up of being the only posting king so far so he's taking a break to let the rest of us mere mortals catch up with him a bit!

Oh no!

And the news is worse... we are following the story of Ron Pattenden who
is sailing round Britain on a Laser for charity (crazy!)... you can read about
his first month of travel from Eastbourne to Wales in the August 13 issue
of the mag... but we have just had his latest diary entry in... he's now in
Scotland, and it seems he might have eaten our posting king along the
way!

'I got back to Thurso late on 20/7. Just managed to catch a Haggis and
had chips with it whilst walking back to Scrabster.'

Oh dear...

I'm back!

Took a while to get the duct tape off my hands, untie my feet from the chair and digest the Bacon bap rammed down my throat, that Tigger and Mr Burns tied me to. Leaving me on top of a hill far, far away did not help either

But after a journey which can only be compared to that of Robinson Crusoe i have found a computer again and will take heed this time especially now that i have been joined by Phil on Stars.

Last time i take an offer from a member of editorial

Where she be:

Southend on Sea - Don't think so, that would mean work
Hamble - Bar's are still stocked
Greece - All over now
Abersoch - Too cold and wet
Scotland - Not a May bank holiday
Cork - Out of season
Valencia - Too big for her, may get lost

So is it a hundred acre wood or some small island somewhere in the Med?

or heaven abid could she be away cruising????

After all the middle sea race is coming soon???

Any guesses??

Brian, why don't you look about for a club that does sail now. There should be a few, even if you are in ireland. besides there is lots of good open club racing at this time in the winter series'.

Posted By: Garry
Date Posted: 15 Nov 04 at 8:51pm
Brian - have you actually competitively sailed a keelboat, or a cat or an Oppie, Topper, 420? (What is your sailing experience?). We might all dream about how well we can sail the latest super fast skiff but the reality, for a large number would be lots of time swimming, frustration and broken rigs. Sail a J24 or 60' yacht in a race or extreme conditions - just as much adrenaline - esp if you work the foredeck and are trying to hank on the jib while the bow is dropping vertically what seems like 20 feet!

We all sail for different reasons and get something different from the sport, every class has something special - to say just one class is superior to another on the basis of the adrenaline rush, is, in my opinion, to completely miss the point.

I frequently deride the class a friend sails over a pint and the quid pro quo is he does the same to me. However, if he needed a crew I wouldn't hesitate to sail in it if I was at a loose end and if asked for advice would recommend it if I thought it suitable.

I suggest you get out and sail, whatever floats, be it the unmanagable pig like Hurley 22 (does anyone remember them?) Hurricane or Laser 5000, once you have a few gales/broaches/ripped mains under your belt in a variety of craft you'll be a bit more sanguine about what and why others sail what they do (even the funboat).

um, well i have snapped the mast on a topaz uno, which is pretty tough, and dont even know how.... and also for an unexpected reason i have snapped the rudder on a 420, this one really mystified me, i was just blastin along in a straight line and it snapped for no apparent reason and the boat gybed on top of my crew who was out on the wire... pretty freaky. for a newbie like me anyway . i really should still be a newbie, even tho i am nearing a posting king...

if u see my first post, which i think was a topic called online reviews that never took off u will see i confess to being a sailing newb, i have done about 10hrs of sailing since then, in 5 days, so the last time i was sailing is..... the week preceding halloween.

There is nothing like being out of control to show you, you are alive!!, I used to think keelboats were boaring but after having raced them in 30+ knots (sunfast 36 in Largs), the rush is just the same!!  The speed may not be there but the loads are so much higher, and it hurts a lot more if you get hit by something.  Each to their own, go get your fix your way!!

Brian,

I used to live in central london without a car and i used to have an epic to get to sailing. I strapped my foils to the back of my bike and used a drain pipe on my bike to hold the sails, and panniers for my kit. I cycled or should I say wobbled on my bike for 10 minutes to the train station. then I managed to fight my way through Waterloo station in London (and commuters in suits and tourists), to take a train for 45 minutes to a train station which was 2 miles from the club whereupon I would then wobble for another 20 minutes or so to get to the sailing club. In total this took about two hours from door to boat, and then 15 minutes to get on the water. Then I had to repeat the journey home again with wet kit which is twice as heavy!

Perserve it is well worth it. I now have a car and am 2 minutes from my boat and guess what I drive - how lazy!

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I can remember when I first started sailing.  Similar story to your own.  Sails spinnaker pole and anything that had need repairs plus my kit went with me on the tube to Charing Cross and then by train to Sheppey and then back again when wet and heavy.  The first year I couldn't afford a wetsuit so wore jeans and a yellow plastic top.  I capsized a lot so get very cold and wet but persevered.  I kinda appreciate my breathable top, steamer and a car to carry it all.

brian, i don't mean this horribly at all, so don't take it the wrong way, but why do you read and use a sailing forum where people are talking about their boats, and sailing when it makes you depressed to hear it cos you don't have a boat?!!

Do you mean Cork? Find someone to crew for. Contact the club and ask them if they have a crew register. If the're still Yacht racing then finding a crewing position might be easier (more crew needed for a Yacht), failing that get a notice on the club notice board. Above all be upbeat, positive, enthusiastic, happy and prepared to muck in where need - you'll soon get to know people.

Hey Brian you know the 29er is a difficult boat to sail.  I hesitate to say this but a 420 might be a better boat to start off with, especially as you're breaking rudder blades (a sure sign you aren't keeping the boat flat enough).  In all honesty you'll get to handling a 29er faster if you go through blasting a 420 in a force 7 first and it might be cheaper and so you'll get your hands on it sooner.

redback,i dont like 420s tho, they are so old fashioned. i have sailed 405s
aswell, a little, i find them really annoying. the absence of a ridge in the
middle of the boat to brace ur feet against means every time the boat
heels u just fall onto the leeward side. you might say the crew shuld have
been trapezing to level the boat but that is just it, i was sailing the Hobie
singlehanded, so i had to do the jib and tiller and main at once, which
was distracting enough without having to watch out for gust and hike at
the same time.... and i dont have a clue why the rudder snapped. i doubt
it was because of heeling, i had someone trapezing so i think it was
pretty flat. its probly just coz the rudder was rubbish. it was basically a
plank of wood. not even sharp, just vaguely rudder shaped. and in
reference to being to hard to sail, well yes, u might be right. but if u see
my 'signature' then u will realise that i dont give a damn if im not good
enough.

sorry about the lenght of this but i wanted to explain evrything fully...

Brian,

How much sailing have you done?  Best to find out why the rudder snapped so as you can prevent it from happening again (bad workmen and all that).

You may not give a damn if you are not good enough to sail a certain class of boat, but you will have much more fun if you are good enough to sail it.  If you struggled that much with the 405 you should get some more experience before jumping into a 29er.

Don't write off a class just because it looks old fashioned.

struggled singehanded i said! i hav done. um, well i have been sailing
since last easter.i think. watever well i have sailed two summers anyway,
one of them for six weeks and the other for four. and a few weeks in
between. like easter. and i have never done racing. heck the best thing i
have done is won a series of three 'races' at the sailing school and the
instructor said i have definite racing potential. yay

The only reason I ask is that I have seen some quite good junior sailors jump into a 29er and really struggle to start with.  They then end up fed up and sail less.  I have seen some others who have cut their teeth in Fireflys and 420's hop into a 29er and go straight to the front of the fleet (at club level). I think you hit the nail on the head when you said you struggled to sail the boat and look for gusts, even if you were sailing single handed.  Learn to look for the gusts in something a bit taner than a skiff then when you progress all you have to worry about is learning to sail the boat.

If you are determined to get a skiff then also put as much effort into getting a regular crew as you do to getting the boat.

Why are you being so abusive?  There is a lot of advise available on this forum if you care to look.  You seem to have an attitude problem. You have a lot to learn. What has your signature got to do with your sailing ability or what type of boat you sail.   Sailors tend to be a friendly helpful bunch.  Are you sure you will fit in?

For some reason I also thought you hankered after a 29er?

If you're thinking Musto Skiff then on the basis of what you've posted I don't think you're anywhere near being able to sail one safely outside of a training environment and certainly not on open water without safety cover and plenty of uncongested room. Read the article in Y&Y to see how difficult Simon Hiscocks found it!

I could, of course be totally wrong! But if you're intending to be an instructor one day then some of the most important skills/ qualities are: being able to recognise and work within your own abilities; rig and sail well any boat normally used for training, which normally means you can rig virtually anything given time, sail competently and confidently in a non showy way; inspire confidence and be a good communicator.

Your very narrow focus on just fast singlehanders is not going to help you with many of the above!

Posted By: redback
Date Posted: 22 Nov 04 at 8:36pm

Brian I want to apologise - I didn't want to stir all this up.  What I was trying to say is that there are some skills in sailing which help you win races and if you a wrestlng with a difficult boat you might never notice some important principals.  Also its more fun to be blasting around in strong winds than it is to be upside down with broken gear because you've gone out in a boat which is beyond your experience.

Now you may be able to handle a 29er for all I know but there is much to learn about sailing in lesser craft and lesser craft can be cheaper which means you stand more chance of getting on the water sooner - and there is nothing better than getting on the water to improve your skills.

Can I give you an example?  I remember turning up at an inland club in my Laser in which I had become quite good at my sea sailing club.  I blasted away from the other Lasers at the start and pulled out a 3 or 4 boat length advantage near the windward mark.  We were lifted and immediately one of the boats tacked off - I was dismissive (and probably thought "silly old codger, he's tacked on a lift").  meanwhile the lift continued and I sailed a great big circle around the mark - he meanwhile tacked back, rounded the mark and was halfway down the next reach.  He had wiped out my 4 lengths advantage and created his own 15 length advantage.  I was concentrating on boat speed he was concentrating on wind. 

You don't learn about wind in boat speed type boats (like 29ers) you learn about wind in boats where perfomance is not everything (like Lasers, Toppers and Wayfarers).  To be good at sailing you have to be good at wind and boat speed.  Its important to learn about wind first otherwise you sail very fast in the wrong direction in your 29er.

Sailing is such a demanding sport you have to be so good at so many things.  Physically good, and brainy, its such a challenge and that's why, like you, I love it.  Forget the 29er, get sailing in anything - there is so much to learn.  The 29er can come later.

  by this i meant that in a 29er i would not have to be doing everything, i was merely using the Musto skiff as an example of what i definitely would not be able to sail. the signature referal was to let u all know that i dont care how badly i would be able to sail it, i am so stupidly obsessed with 29ers that i wouldnt give a damn.

oh dear, so sorry about the lack of courtesy and restraint old chaps, would u really prefer it if all i did was say, "bang on old bean my view exactly" it is annoying people like me that create tension and heated argument, producing interest in the forum.

and redback, i have sailed, in a wayfarer world, which was quite fun, while practising rudderless-which i suck at- i could jump up and down on the gunwales without a trapeze, great fun! but none of my sailing really counts since it is mostly just showing level ones how to tack and stuff, i sail so much at the centre that the staff just treat me as a peice of the furniture there.

it depends though, because some people under 16 are reaaly stupid and dangerous on them, and show off etc, but then some of us are quite sensible!

it is too tempting to show off

Some folks would say it's safer not knowing Sailor Girl.

You can always try and catch a live one up till Burns Night tho

It should be a mix of sheep heart, lungs and liver mixed with oatmeal and suet with lots of seasoning.  Think I may have to have some tomorrow now.  I draw the line at the bashed neeps though.

 unfortunately (or fortunately, for you guys) got a job in the marine industry where it means that i am now doing the work of 3 and no longer have time to read forums.

 

Any rumours about Sailor Girl having me the other morning are totally unfounded, i was not seen leaving her house doing the walk of shame with Susan following me an hour later, not at all!

an abrupt change of attitude on the part of hurricane, first anger, then when he realises everyone is laughing at him he changes to 'so what?' mode
