Sailing hints & tips - cruising-sailing

 

I spend about all my summers sailing about the Greek islands. With this small clause I would like to share some sailing hints with you that will help you enjoy the most out of your sailing holidays.

? When moored or anchored, use your sun tent and stay under it most of the time. Our friend, the Sun, every now and then can be dangerous, chiefly at some point in summertime.

? Be alert on board and if possible, constantly wear a pair of soft boat shoes. This way you will defend your feet and the deck surface. When sailing, avoid on foot on deck exclusive of exact argue and in rough weather, commit to memory to use your life belt.

? If you have brood on board, let them sit beyond but all the time in the floor exhausting a life vest.

? Already in commission the emotional announcer winch, start the motor and run it at aprox 1. 200 to 1. 500 rpm in neutral. This is basic in order not to exhaust the benefit battery, as the expenditure of the winch is enormously high. Our advice is to low your affix manually and accumulate it using the cold control. At whatever time using the commentator winch (dropping or collecting your anchor) be very assiduous with your fingers. An stimulating affix winch is a great ability but also exceedingly chance with careless use.

? Commit to memory to use the thrilling refrigerator only with the motor running.

? Many yachts are equipped with a change with which you may bond the two batteries, to have more power to start your motor. You can keep them connected, as long as your motor is running. When you stop the motor, bring to mind to disconnect them. This will keep you, to be lacking thrilling power in case that you will forget, for example, the exciting refrigerator running.

? When you moor in a port, constantly have a fender connecting your yacht and the quay, so even if your announcer for any analyze is not capable to keep you in position, the yacht will not touch the quay. Take care of the swell that big ferries cause and avoid mooring the yacht close to the place these boats anchor.

? Ahead of you put your engine in gear, have a look about the yacht for hanging ropes that may block or harm your propeller or gearbox. When you want to go from ahead to backward, do it after you let the engine speed drop to idling.

? Avoid towing your liner exceptionally in rough weather, as you may lose it. It's beat to keep it available in front of the mast. Consider that lost items are at all times electric to the charterer. In case you need tug help and beforehand you acknowledge it, agree on the price and ask for a receipt that openly states that no advance payment will be asked.

? Avoid reducing identification or napkins in the toilet bowl. It's develop to use forced bags for the waste papers. Toilet pumps are not able to close such things.

? Consider to close the main beat at the top of gas jug when you don't use the gas stove or when insignificant person is on board.

? While refilling any water or fuel tanks, make sure not to mix fuel with water or water with fuel. In both cases the condition becomes disagreeable and arduous to be repaired.

? Keep all the time an eye on the hour contradict of your motor and make sure that you have ample total of fuel in your tank. The fuel gauge is not all the time reliable, so check the hours that you have used the motor.

? Do not throw fake bottles, cans or any other waste in the sea. Keep them on board and cut off directly at the first harbour.

? It is also requested not to raise any flag, other than the Greek, at the aft side of the yacht, as it is alongside Greek and Worldwide nautical regulations.

CAUTION : If the yacht is equipped with DSC VHF, DO NOT PRESS DISTRESS Gesture Badge If not IT IS Agreed Basic (FIRE - Conflict - Education - SINKING). There is a penalty for the gratuitous use.
