You know you're a laser sailor when you go on laser forum
It must be nice to be that good....and to know you're that good....and to be able to tell everyone you're that good. You rock!
It's not the windy days when I get cuts and scrapes. It's on the light air days when I have to sit on top of cleats and contort my body at funny angles that my boat beats me up the most.
I knew a college girl once that did fordeck on a J-22. She was pretty hardcore and didn't let anything stop her, so she got her share of scrapes and bruises. She said one of her professors pulled her aside and asked if her boyfriend was beating her up.
But didn't you hurt your wrist polishing your boat back in the spring and then chop a chunk out of your thumb while cutting a line? It all counts.
the wrist injury is assumed to be caused my many things: sailing being one of them, but I played Varsity Golf my Senior year in HS, and practice and play for 8 months, 4-5 times a week will do it
and yes I did cut my thumb, but I was not sailing
From Ross's Blog:
"[A]s I was shortening up my downhaul with a fresh razer, I cut a honkin chunk out of the tip of my thumb, and it actually left a dent! It bleed like a sweaty pig in heat in July for 20 good minutes, and I actually felt fait and am still suprised I was able to walk myself back to my boat to lie down and drink some Gatoraid without passing out!"
Certainly sounds like a sailing related injury to me! It totally counts.
Wait...Rossums hurts himself playing golf...but he's too good at Laser sailing to hurt himself?
Geez guys, get a room.
Funny thing about that is the fact that the people who feel like they have to tell you they're good usually aren't... Just putting that out there.
DING! DING! DING! We have found a winner of the prize for the most obvious comment of the day!
You know you're a Laser sailor when you realize that you're not as good as you told everybody you were.
You know you're a Laser sailor when you realize it's not all about winning.
wats wrong with winning?
You know you're a Laser sailor when you see the small craft warning and get an even stronger urge to go out sailing.
GET OFF THIS FORUM
Nic calm down remember this is th open discussion part of the forum were laser peeps chat about subjects unrelated to class politics
So, I write a response indicating that I enjoy Laser sailing even when I know there's no chance that I will win the regatta, and then I get flamed by someone (perhaps a young figure skater?) who learned how to spell from listening to Avril Lavigne.
Isn't the internet great!
As long as we don't degrade to the level of comments on video sites like youtube, I think we'll be ok.
You lknow you are a laser sailor when you are out sailing and not reading this thread
