Columbus and Discovery Day

Today is Columbus Day and I also include on this day what I call Discovery Day as their were the Vikings and others who also landed in North American (Columbus actually landed in Cuba and the Bahamas). Some indigenous people who are my ancestors crossed the land bridge into North America but who knows maybe some actually traveled on boats of some sort. There are also some stories of religious groups landing in North, Central, and South America. So there are a lot of groups that took part in discovering North America, and all of the Americas.

My thought is to celebrate the brave skippers, crew, and passengers that were willing to go out on the sea of unknown to land on lands that they had no idea was there but with great faith and spirit of adventure were willing to do what others of their day would not do. Some even thought these sailors would sail off the edge of the earth.

Columbus in particular was the sailor who started the process that one day would end up creating the most free and prosper nation on earth, the United States of America.

So let us celebrate the spirit of Columbus and all brave sailors who did what seemed impossible.

At FunToSAIL we will start producing adventure sailors series to discuss various ancient voyages that likely happened all over the world and related topics. Stay tuned!

Here is a great video about the amazing technology of what appears to be a very simple Viking sailing ship, but they were anything but simple.

SailGP Racing October 2021

 

Here is news about SailGP foiling F50 racing that just happened this last weekends. Team Australia banged out the overall win in this series. Team Great Britain proved very competitive but ended with a spectacular pitchpole capsize and Team USA proved very consistent to place second overall in this series and overall in the years racing that ends in San Francisco this March.

A new development during the racing is women being added as the 5 sailor on board. Wonderful to see women getting their opportunity to get involved.

If you missed the racing watch it in these two videos. Racing happens again in December. Learn more at sailgp.com

2022 Hobie Getaways

We received our shipment of new and improved 2022 Hobie Getaways in early August. Was a late delivery due to the work Hobie did to update the boat. We were the first dealer on the West Coats and Mountain States to receive them.

The boats were redesigned to stiffen them up a little, with thicker skeg and edge along the bottom of the hull. Bows are no longer wave piercing design but more traditional shape. Wing seats are lighter and more comfortable. So the hulls and wing seats are new.

Our customers love the new boat! The boat sails beautifully.

Order your Getaway for 2022 delivery now as there is a limited supply of Getaways.

Just a few of our Happy customers!
