Stugeron sends me to sleep. I once drifted off while steering! The others sometimes work and sometimes don't. As well as those just mentioned I've tried Avomine (Avamine?) but it became...

The other problem (apart, that is, from environmental and financial implications) is that there's nowhere to put it. The foredeck in a...

But can you not simply cut it into steaks and grill it?

As a rather belated addendum to the above, I was in some very nasty overfalls off Bolt Head this summer. The wind was only about F4 but there was a lumpy cross-sea running, and being reflected off...

A lot depends on the conditions.

If I'm stopping for lunch in a sheltered creek in good weather with a metre under the keel (2m of water) I'll veer only the minimum 6m of cable. Overnight I use...

Hi Karin


If you can get to the south coast of England next summer you'd be welcome to join me cruising in my Westerly Centaur for a time. It won't be luxurious,and the weather is unlikely to be...

Agree with all of that. I always give my specs to someone to hold before I throw up. And CLIP ON!

Sitting under a tree (species unspecified) was Nelson's idea; he was a suffrerer too (starting in the Solent at the age of 12). Never fails.

Don't want a multihull anyway, and certainly nothing that big!
