The sailboat club that I was a member of had a wonderful beautiful site on the Tennessee River.  It was wide and long but there was a sandbar not too far from the dock and occasionaly one of the members would get hung up there.  They would have to buy a case of beer for the club.  I never got hung up there though.  Perhaps I was too slow to make it???
 
My brother had a 25 O'day and quite frankly, it was a bit like my 25 Hunter, slow and lunky although he had more sails than me.

    My Loran would tell me I was in Bermuda when I was entering Boston Harbor!  Good thing I knew where the yacht club was!  And the mooring.

      I guess that is the reason that everybody has a GPS.  I have one on my boat although I rarely use the boat.  I have them in all my vehicles.

          The closest I ever came to being an active boater, was the evening I took Helen Seixxxx, my Prom Date, to watch the Submarine Races on the Los Angeles River after the Prom ended. December 1959. You L A folks know what an adventure that could have been !!!  
           
          if you are not familiar with the L A area, think of the drag race scene in the original  "GREASE" Movie.  That's the L A River !

              I'm not a sailor but have sailed in Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island, San Diego Bay in California and the British Virgin Islands. Other than that it has been "sailing" in the US Navy, motor boating on Lake Minnetonka and mostly paddling canoes and kayaks of late.

                That picture of the Star of India brings back memories. When I was stationed in Cali we visited San Diego a few times, and would usually eat at least once at Anthony's, which is virtually under the Star's bowsprit. You can see part of it in that picture. I haven't been there in 25 years, but it used to be awfully good eating.
