Fun simple online sail simulator

Do you have boring meetings sometimes like I do? I was just bored and came across this simple fun sail simulator.
All aboard

Try it here. Fun for about 10 minutes?!

Next, I'll cover one that is fun for much longer.

Free online sailing magazine: Southwinds

It's funny, how you sometimes come across things on the internet.  I was reading about the great boat Seaward 32RK (good for another post - way outside of my range, but still fantastically interesting boat). So, was pointed to a review in Southwinds magazine.

August 2017 cover

You can find the magazine home page here.  All back issues are pretty much available through Issuu.

I also found an FTP server with many back issues, easier to download than Issue, specially if you use an extension such as DownThemAll.

Sail-In Cinema in Toronto

Too bad its too far for me, but this is really cool. Instead of Drive-In theatres, in Toronto there's Sail-In theatres called Sail-In Cinema. Kewl eh?

Anchor Watch!

From August 18 to August 20, audiences enjoyed Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Beauty and the Beast (2017) and Edward Scissorhands on a four-storey, two-sided, floating screen anchored to a barge in Lake Ontario.
The inaugural Sail-In Cinema™ was held in 2011 to mark PortsToronto's centennial year. The annual event attracts more than 10,000 people on land and 100 boats over the three-day period and is now a permanent fixture on Toronto's summer calendar.

Brings a whole new meaning to Anchor Watch :-)

Blog: Graduating to a smaller boat

Boy, I havent been blogging in awhile.

I'll try to be better.

I do read quite a few blogs, one of my favourite, because I love small sailboat travel and particularly Matt Layden's Paradox design (for 1 person), is Graduating to a Smaller Boat.

Beautiful Paradox
Beautiful Paradox

Dave built his own Paradox, he sailed it around Hawaii, and now he just arrived back in Florida after going to Bahamas and Cuba.

Proof that size does not matter when cruising, safety and seamanship does.
