And if you're wondering about the title, well I'm afraid it's something specific to British sailors, as "Sailing By" is the title to the piece of music that is always played before the 00:48 GMT forecast on BBC Radio 4.
 
Something we've been brought up with I suppose. Play it to some Brits of a certain age and they we will either well up with nostalgic tears if we're away from home, grab a pencil ready to copy down the forecast (one of its actual purposes - the other is to fill in the gap between the previous programme and the forecast, as the forecast absolutely has to be broadcast at the same time, a flexible, repetative piece of music was chosen) or fall asleep in a pavlovian response. Just like Jarvis Cocker.
 


 
Yeah!  About time!  A sailing thread.  I'm the cruise chair for our yacht club.  We are planning some cruises for the SF Bay for 2012 including some anchor outs where we can watch the ACWS up close.
