    Default Some cruising....

    Here are some "chapters" from a previously published DVD of our 2011 - 2012 Caribbean Cruise which was a round trip from the Chesapeake Bay. Two other chapters from the same DVD were linked on the "Some racing..." thread. They are not repeated here. The originally intended audience was friends and family.

    A short showing us doing a "cruise mode" tack with auto pilot assist. Pretty standard.

    I noticed that everyone always had harnesses on in the 1st vid in the series. Sometimes tethered too. But not on this recent one. Any specific reason?

    Hi Bob, an astute observation.

    One of our "boat rules" is that if you need to hang on to something to remain standing, you have to wear a harness and be clipped in with a tether. Also, always at night when underway, as soon as you step out of the saloon, you have to clip in no matter the conditions. When we're off shore on passage we typically wear a harness even in benign conditions, but may not be tethered. But another boat rule is that when fighting a large fish, or landing any fish from the transom, we have to tether, so we may wear a harness to be able to get tethered quickly.

    In the "tacking" video, we're in the lee of Cat Island, Bahamas and it's pretty flat water. So we're not even wearing harnesses.

    Thanks for asking,

    Safety first, indeed.
