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