blind sailing

While it's certainly not the same thing, I try to practice upwind sailing with my eyes closed sometimes.

You can't see puffs, chop or anything, but you feel pretty well connected to the.

I sail on a river though, so I have to open my eyes all the time.

Much respect to the guys and gals who deal with this day in and day out though!

pretty sure I would eventually fall out of the boat... I guess they have only one sighted person on the boats, and that person servers only as the navigator, doesnt help with the actual sailing of the vessel...
