Sailing vid for Paula and ccholder...

...and you're never to old to learn!

Watching this will give you a bit of the feeling of the joy of sailing:

Thank you windgrrl!!! It looks fantastic! (I was going to say exhillerating, but I can't figure out how to spell it)

I'm putting it on my list of things to do.

Very exciting and inspirational and fast.. The landsailing world speed record is 116 MPH. One pilot, no crew. Not meant as a high jack, just an interesting observation to me.

This is NOT the recordholder, this is a challangeer from the UK.

A few years ago I was windsurfing near some sailboats. I was passing the first one on the up wind side and the people were watching me instead of what they were doing. We got a big gust of wind and the sailboat almost got blown down and then it turned up into the wind. I pass the front with just a few feet to spare.

There was another sailboat in front so I decided to pass it with a lot more room. Again they were watching me and almost ran over a windsurfer that was down in the water.

That movie shows a lot of people sailing real close together which makes me hope nothing will go wrong.
