Today I saw this incredibly small sailboat Despite being so small ir still felt too low and sleek for its size I mean the thing looks like a miniaturized j-class hull. Anyway i thought it was cool and as long as it's floaty and the keel is long enough it's seaworthiness shouldn't be a problem I guess. Ever seen something like it? Also post cool sailboats

Looks like an incredibly wet ride. Kind of cool though.

I think my favorite boat I've seen so far is Kevin Boothby's Ruth Avery. It is an absolutely gorgeous boat. The gaff rig, the tiller, the bowsprit, and the color scheme between the hull, cabin and sails just all goes together so well. Having no engine onboard also adds to the charm, she's circumnavigated the world in the same way that sailors centuries before did it.

I also like these cute little things. They're working boats originally designed and used to fish on sheltered bays and ponds. They were common sights on the Chesapeake for example around the 1920s, and some examples of that vintage still sail today. They're also traditionally gaff rigged, and incredibly stable for their size due to a typical 2:1 length to beam ratio. Once I've gotten my basic keelboat and coastal navigation certs, I kind of want to try and take one up the ICW. Maybe even do a Great Loop trip.

You don't have to get wet. There's a lot of boats like this in my local marina in Denmark. They're small, cheap and simple. Some of them are long-keeled and really easy to sail, if you're a beginner.
Pic related is a 40 feet Ylva, it's pretty long, but extremely sleek and very fast.

I used to sail as a kid in bongland. I did a bunch of youth qualifications including some ocean dinghy shit. I really loved it and would enjoy getting back into it. Any advice on how to get back into it?
I’m not trans btw.

Does any of you fellas sail? If yes, what do you sail and where?
I have a Maxi 68, and I sail around inner danish waters.

I have a spirit 28 I sail in the Dutch delta.

You should really roll your furler all the way in btw.

>>1650954
I sail a Maxi 77 on the swedish west coast.

I have some minor repairs to do, but I hope to go sailing this weeked.

I guess that's not your Maxi 68 in the pic?

>>1650954
I got the sailing bug on a vacation in Cancun last month. Took a crash course on the resort's Hobie so I could take it out by myself and loved it. I'll be doing the basic keelboat certification course in June, and then the basic coastal navigation course in either fall or winter. In a year or two maybe I'll have a boat I can do the Great Loop passage with around the eastern US.

>>1650102
I don't understand how the main sheet is set up.
>>
>>1650102
Long, thin boats are really common here in Sweden. Search google for "skärgårdskryssare" if you want to see images.

I've sailed on one called a "Lotus Scandinavia" which is like 12m long and 2m wide.

These boats are often built with very heavy keels and sail very well upwind in flat water.
In a chop they very quickly become extremely wet due to the low freeboard and the shape and weight making them punch through waves rather than sail over them. They are also very, very cramped inside, again due to the narrow beam and very low freeboard.

Unfortunately I'm on the East coast, so I guess I'll be spending a lot of time in the New England/Nova Scotia area to begin with once I have my certs and some coastal crewing experience. Really wishing I'd gotten to do Sea Base instead of or in addition to Philmont.

I race Thunderbird 26s and am almost done restoring my Tumlaren 27 that was built for the crown prince of Denmark in 1947. Currently sail in Washington but want to take my Tumlaren down to California if it doesn't sell later in the year

The Picrel is apparently the cheapest sailboat you can buy. People will make fun of you.
>>
>>1657019
Based Tumlanon! More update pics?
>>
>>1657447
I don't have much. This week I'm raising the mast to iron out the rigging. Once that's sorted the boat could be launched bit I have a few more small things before that happens, I pray I can get my shit together. I'm really close to getting the boat in the water anon. This project has been so hard and tested my will so much. I've built brand new boats in half the time
>>
>>1657225
Looks like a fun project
>>
>>1657515
Based. That' awesome. Is that a drydock?
>>
>>1657910
No. The drydock is way too expensive for me, I'm a youngish man and couldn't afford to restore the boat and pay for dry dock space. I put the boat in a flatbed trailer and towed it two miles away from the port to this workshop that I unfortunately also live in... Port Townsend where I live is notorious for wooden boat restorations by young men living in their boat shops

BCfag. Not even that far away. If these borders ever open up I might take you up on that. Any more pics? Just love that boat.
>>
>>1660030
Are you on Vancouver island by chance? The first place I'll sail to with this boat is Victoria and then possibly up to Nanaimo. If the borders are closed I'll just anchor at Gonzalez Bay in Vic and row ashore. Ideally I'll sail this boat in the gulf islands a lot. It's my favorite place when I run commercial fishing boats up to Alaska

I too just love the Tumlaren. It was my dream boat and I somehow stumbled upon this one that was given to me
>>
>>1660312
>the Tumlaren
This is making me cringe. The n at the end already bends 'tumlare' to the definitive article, so also prefixing it with 'the' is just redundant.
It would be like naming your boat 'the porpoise' and then referring to that particular boat as "the 'the porpoise'", which I guess makes sense from an autistic perspective, maybe, but it feels wrong.

I'm so fucking jealous. My actual dream is to get to crew on either of these boats.
>>
>>1664668
Also think it would be really freaking cool. How does one go about becoming ballast on a big racing yacht? Do you just watch for upcoming races then google the different participants and see if they're taking volunteers? Or is it something that does require some prior experience and an inside contact? IIRC from one of the circumnavigation races several of the contestant boats had several people who had never been to sea before at all, with one English ginger being so seasick she could not function during the final leg across the Atlantic.
>>
I don't sail but I spent all yesterday looking up junk rigs, yulohs, and yuloh pedaling. Pretty cool desu, I love low tech. How good would a catamaran with a junk rig and yuloh be? The multihull would speed up the junk, make it even more stable, and also negate the rocking caused by the yuloh.

Any UK sailbois here?

>affordable
Define "affordable". I'm inclined to distrust the accounting ethics of people who are deep enough into a hobby that they're routinely risking their own lives for thrills.
>>
Has anyone here tried using a telescopic boat hook to pole out your foresail "on the wrong side" when running? I have a fairly small jib (around 21sqm) so I'm thinking it might hold.
>>
>>1665628
I don't think most sailors are intentionally risking their own lives for thrills. Not everybody is as crazy as that Norwegian vlogger that intentionally sailed out into a force 10 just to see if he could.

IKTF bros, but my little yacht is only a 24 foot bilge keeler, so I have to really use my imagination.

After I see your post I reverse image searched and found Marshall catboats. You're right they're absolutely beautiful and cute. I think I'll have one build.

So my SJ24 came with a carbon fibre 150 Genoa and a light 150 Genoa. What type of wind would be best for each sail?
