Just got in off the water after a glorious day of training in the 29er. Sometimes good old Canada can deliver just the most spectacular winter days…a balmy 11 degrees Celsius and 10 knots in what is usually our winter outflow direction. Today however, it was beautifully warm and felt almost like a chinook wind if Victoria were to get such a thing.
When I got back in, my Finnish sailing friend, Joonas, had posted this video. It sort of brilliantly describes how everyone thinks that we sailors spend our days! Of course I love to prance around yachts while wearing polo shirts with the collars pulled up. Of COURSE I drink cocktails while trimming sails in my bikini. That’s what it’s all about isn’t it!? This vid definitely pays homage to all those lovely blokes out there with a dream to buy some beat up old keelboat for $500, because we all know that this is what you’re all imagining!
