I am glad someone got the reference.
Anyway, I sail a full rig... I sorta want to try the radial but whatever, I weigh something like 175 so I can hold the full rig down fairly well.
For those of you that don't know what the laser is, it's a boat that can present you with some of the gnarliest sailing experiences possible. Watch this video:
I don't really have much experience sailing bigger stuff... I know nobody who owns a sailboat and my habit is funded entirely by my spare cash, so i am sort of limited in my options. I was thinking of upgrading this summer to a little sleeper sailboat, but the moorage is too expensive. I might buy a hobie 16 at some point, but the laser is just great for now... sailing it on windy days is crazy (yesterday I was keeping pace with people tubing behind speedboats) and it's a decent workout too. Anyway, I just spent $500 on a new sail and modern rigging so I am going to have to get some use out of it before I upgrade.
