That's the approach I take for inshore. I'd still jump at the chance to be a hand on a boat to Hawaii or French Polynesia. I've got a long coastal trip to the Baja in my future as well.

Popped out just barely into the Southern Ocean on one of those big tourist motor boats when visiting Bruny Island in Tasmania, and even on a nice day could see how powerful it could be.

A friend posted a really gripping account of crossing from Tonga to New Zealand that convinces me that it is a pastime best left to dreaming. Especially the part about the poor sobs who were told to turn around to aid another boat.

How's the shoulder doing? 

 

Yeah, there was a lot of debris out there. It made it that much more challenging. And the waves were double house sized. I saw waves far bigger than anything captured by a camera. 

The shoulder is fine. The elbow still bothers me, but I try not to complain too much about it. We all play hurt around here.

It doesn't mean much unless you're familiar with the history of windsurfing in the Gorge, but Tuesday was likely the biggest day in "the corridor"since windsurfing started here over 30 years ago. This is my 32nd windsurfing season here, and I've seen lots of big days, including one in 1990 that set a mark that lasted nearly 24 years. I've experienced similar wind strength, (28-45 averaging 35mph)  but the water conditions really set this day apart. 

The visions in my head from 3 hours of sailing are far bigger than this photo depicts, but it gives an idea of what it was like.

No, that's a kiter. I windsurf. I don't know of any photos of me from that day. It's okay though, I have a video running through my head. That day won't soon be forgotten. It was far bigger in person than any photo or video can demonstrate.

The link I posted lists Otto Happel as a German citizen living in Switzerland. I also found this link that says the Hetairos is registered in The Cayman Islands. It also has different numbers for length, draft, etc. Googling "Hetairos yacht" yields several articles with differing specifications. I guess they don't think we're interested in details. {#Wink}

Wikipedia

The Union Flag (also known as the Union Jack) should only be flown as a jack by Royal Navy ships when moored, at anchor, while underway and dressed with masthead ensigns or if the Monarch or an Admiral of the Fleet is on board. The Union Flag may also signal that a court martial is in progress.

The use of the Union Flag as an ensign on a civilian craft is still illegal.<1> ever since Charles I ordered it be restricted to His Majesty's ships "upon pain of Our high displeasure" in the 17th century, mainly due to its unauthorised use by merchant mariners to avoid paying harbour duties by passing themselves off as Royal vessels.

There wasn't a good view of the whole ship, so I didn't get any pics of it. If I remember correctly, The ensign was displayed midships, but not at the top of the mainmast - maybe on a mainmast stay. There was no wind, so the whole ensign wasn't entirely visible. It looked like a Union Jack but may have been, as you say, of a protectorate nation. You've got me curious now. I'll try to get a better look if it's still there tomorrow.

Meh. Musn't be grumpy, so congratulations to the guy on his new boat, and it is a proper sailing boat.
 
However, it's not a red ensign that she's flying, it's a defaced red ensign belonging to one of our overseas protectorates or somesuch. Tax havens, the lot of them. I'm guessing Caymen Islands, but where ever it's registered, it won't be for residential, patriotic or even sentimental reasons. It'll be a tax dodge.

P.S. - Pedants corner
 
1) British vessels fly a variety of ensigns on their transoms.
 
2) The national flag of the United Kingdom is known as the Union Flag
 
3) The only time the Union Flag is known as the Union Jack is when it is raised on the jackstaff (flagpole at bow) of a commissioned vessel of the Royal Navy, which in turn only occurs when the vessel is moored or at anchor.
 
4) Except when the monarch is aboard a commissioned vessel underway, when the Union Jack will be flown at the jackstaff. The Union Flag will also be flown at the mainmast, where it remains merely the Union Flag.

218 feet bow to stern, not counting the 27 foot bow sprit, registered in the UK and flying the Union Jack, it is owned by this man.
