    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    You know you're a Laser sailor when you see the small craft warning and get an even stronger urge to go out sailing.

    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.
