You might be a sailing bum if....

  • any of your wedding gifts came from Crewsaver...

  • your halyards are brand new, but your belt has two splices...

  • your underwear has a Speed Sails logo...

  • you study the sail results more than your tax return…

  • you have a beer can crusher mounted on your mast...

  • you use a marlin spike to break sunburn blisters...

  • you have at least one broken boat part in your car at all times...

  • your holiday plans center around open meetings and regattas...

  • more of your clothes are in the lost property bucket than in your wardrobe….

  • you think of Duck Tape as a long term investment...

  • you've been involved in a fight over whether canned beer is better chilled or at room temperature…

  • you wear your Sailing Clubs sweat shirt to weddings/funerals…

  • people are afraid to touch your wet suit…

  • you think matching wet weather boots are an acceptable wedding gift..

  • Trident Sails phone number is number one on your speed dialer...

  • you can name all the guess beers in the club bar but you have no idea of who is in running the country…

  • all Race Officers are idiots except when it’s your turn….
