In this episode, I take my brother sailing, and uncover some more How Not To Sail tips… Editing and mixing by Maximiliano Frini.
This episode was very cool to make. (And too long in production. But sometimes that happens.)
Pete was a great sport, especially considering his travel nightmare. I figured he’d want to just collapse upon arrival (I would), but he talked me into sailing to dinner. And I talked him into dining alfresco so we could keep an eye on the vessel. It was chilly.
The following day, after crossing a choppy Tampa Bay, we managed to back into the slip in Sarasota in a decent breeze. I’ve never seen five dock hands come out to greet us before. (I swear there was a 60-footer in the empty slip here when we came in. Guess I scared ’em off.) And in case you were wondering what sailing wing and wing looks like, here ya go… I’m sure I’m doing something wrong.
“Is there a nautical term for when you’re doing this?” “Which thing?” “Moving really slowly.”
