Rounding out my last few blog posts, here’s a lesson about Waves from Twitter Sailor Darusha from her presentation at the Bluewater Cruising Association weather seminar. Nice job.

Darusha and Steve keep a blog about their sailing adventures aboard their 45′ centre-cockpit cutter rigged sloop, custom designed by Stan Huntingford and built in 1980 by Schmidt Boatworks in Sidney, BC. Their blog, S.V. Scream, is also the name of the boat.  From “about us:”

Steven and Darusha learned to sail in a classroom in Ross Shepherd High School in Edmonton, Alberta from a Continuing Education class that they thought would be about power boating. After a couple of afternoons on Lake Wabamun, they had attained their Basic Cruising standard through the Canadian Yachting Association and had caught the bug.

Always amazed by how sailing can change life course.

One thought on “Waves”

  1. Hey, Peter, thanks for passing this on. I only wish I’d had the foresight to record the audio of the talk (there’s a lot of info I mentioned that’s not on the slides).

    Fair winds and non-breakers to you & yours.
