it’s a Hobie affair

something is amiss.

I think that maybe, just maybe, the skipper of Sunfish 3929 is having a bad influence on me.

he keeps cheating on 3929 with a big ol’ Flying Scot.

and now I’ve gone and sailed a a non-Sunfish sailboat.

that’s right: I sailed a Hobie Wave.

I just let the boat do the work.

 

I haven’t even sailed my Sunfish a single time this year.  we’ve been too busy, yadda, yadda, yadda (I’m good at making excuses…).

it was my first time on a boat with 2 hulls.  first time on a sailboat that wasn’t a Sunfish (or smaller).

and I liked it.

the water was warm, winds were decent, the location was spectacularly beautiful – perfect conditions to sail comfortably, but not risk tipping the Hobie, particularly since I had guests!

that’s right: 3 girls (women, really… my wife and 2 of my friends’ wives) fit more than comfortably with me on the Hobie.  I can’t say that could ever happen on my Sunfish.  well, you could try it, but it would be quite cramped, and make sailing difficult!

I could go into more detail about the other Hobie that (tried?) sailing at the same time as us, but that’s another story for another day.

should my Sunfish be jealous?

I’m doing the work

I’m not a slacker!

has the increase in instantaneous, short snippets of information, ready to be instantly accessed via various forms of social media caused a decrease in blogging?

is it easier to post something or “like” it on Facebook?

have Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr taken over as the place to look for sailing/nautical images and then some?

have Twitter, Snapchat, or the latest social media craze sapped away all of our fleeting attention spans?

 

I just let the boat do the work

sometimes life gets too busy and I have to remind myself:

I sail

 

ahoy!

sometimes I just need to remind myself:

my sailing inspiration

this has been, and probably will always be, my inspiration for sailing… it always makes me laugh every time I think about it.  ahoy!  I’m sailing! (I just let the boat do the work…)
