Default The "What do you do when your not sailing?" Thread

We all love Sailing - But it's pretty rainy & miserable in Van come winter time.
My crew certainly don't want so sail on my uncomfortable wet boat so I AutoX my car during the off season, burn as many trees as I can in my fireplace & swill Rum.
So what do the rest of you get up to??

Do tell...

I usually wander around the proverbial halls of sailingx looking lost... with a bottle of Raven's rum at my side... If I'm really bored I'll start a thread about the Catalina 27 or Laser 28 ratings...

I think I sail more in the winter than summer, easier to find crew and better winds.

When I am not sailing I am either working on SOAR or RCM-SAR duties. I like to go flying when I can afford it.

I pretend to ski tour and mountain bike too, but I rarely get time.

Yeah I dress like a cyclist when I can but really if I'm not sailing I'm probably working on my POS boat. Although I gotta say owning a 5 year old is a major time suck also.

That's where you're wrong. The five year old, soon six, actually OWNS you!

Try two or (shudder) as many as Karma...

Ha! No shit! Unless you have enough children to man over half a hockey line I don't want to hear about time sucks!

Shaw Mac, if you ever want to pretend to mountain bike with me, I've been pretending all alone here for several months.

Karma I'm in for that. They guys I rode with all last winter usually go Sundays but I am looking at racing my boat every Sunday for the foreseeable future. Saturday morning rides I could do.
