Sailing Downwind a la Kayak style

Tired from a long upwind paddle along the intracoastal waterway bordering the town of Stuart, Florida we had a nice downwind reprieve for the second half of the tour. After looking back over my shoulder spying puffs coming from behind I could not resist a reprieve in the mangroves. Fellow tour buddy, Brian couldn't resist capturing my pose for which I am grateful. Another caveat of learning to sail is substituting one's body for a spinnaker.  However, you sail, happy sails to you. …

"Sounds like you need to give that windlass some TLC. I used to clean and apply a light coating of grease to all the surfaces in and under the gypsy. It remained smooth over a 10 year period. Five of those years were spent cruising full time on the…"

Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
