Difficult waters to sail and lending a hand during mooring are just some of the most popular topics in the forum this week
Thousands of you visited the YBW forums this week to discuss a number of topics, from boats you want to buy to difficult waters to sail in.
One of the top threads saw members debating whether motorboat users are nicer than sailors.
The original poster, yacht, said he had “noticed in marinas, during my sailboat tidal dayskipper practical and elsewhere, that generally people who motorboat are nicer than people who sail, why is that?”
Meanwhile, another member dancrane, said: “The whole challenge that underscores navigation under sail, requires continuous calm concentration and consideration of the various forces that influence movement of the boat… A group of people close at hand, all waving and yelling or chattering or laughing, however happily and agreeably, makes it harder to apply the mental process required.”
