One could add that it certainly attains an admirable angle when stroked the right way - in this case by the breezy winds of Clear Water Bay. No so clear today however; the water was in fact a churning brown colour as we motored out of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club marina and into the bay proper.
The plan had been to sail her around the southern side of Hong Kong Island to the ABC Yacht Club, in preparation for a regatta tomorrow. But the constant drizzling rain and poor visibility forced us to turn back before we reached the open sea. No matter! I accomplished what I set out to achieve: trapeze sailing.
|Certainly well-built and sturdy. And the boat ain't bad either.|
After three hours of strutting and fretting upon the waves, we returned. I was soaked through after about five minutes of being on the water, but it was only after we pulled up that I started getting a bit chilly. Bless you, typhoon-induced tropical heat.
Oh yeah, and by the way, how can a boat called Viagra still be referred to as a "she"?
Only a "she" could do it for me... A blue "she", makes me thing of Smurfette and that is sooooo wrong. Lucky I have not seen Avatar yet!ReplyDelete
What a great timeReplyDelete
Pretty nice boat there, although, from what it seems, perhaps it's not the best weather for sailing? Great post, lively and entertaining.ReplyDelete
