I can be stupid

Я, может быть, глуп,

But not outrageous

Но не опасен,

I can be sickness

Может быть, болен,

But not contagious

Но не заразен,

I can be empty

Может быть, опустошен,

But I'm not nameless

Но я не безымянен -

It's the way that you love me

Вот таким ты меня любишь,

The way that you love me

Таким ты меня любишь.

I can be patient

Я могу терпеть,

But I'm not waiting

Но я ничего не жду,

I can be shook up

Меня можно взбудоражить,

But I'm not shaken

Но не поколебать,

I can be angry

Меня можно разозлить,

But I'm not jaded

Но не изнурить -

It's the way that you love me

Вот таким ты меня любишь,

The way that you love me

Таким ты меня любишь.

I am not alone here

Здесь я не один,

I'm not on my own here

Я не одинок.

I am not alone...

The OP has gotten some great advice from some very experienced sailors! Good stuff, up above!

Just want to add a bit here:

And if you have sea room, are exhausted or too stressed (Surprised, adrenaline rushed) by a near knockdown, consider heaving to, to catch your breath, settle the nerves, put the boat in order (close hatches, etc.) and consider your options and the weather, whether it is worsening or going to blow over quickly.

Ahoy All Sailors! Do you need experienced crew for a long voyage either Atlantic, Pacific, Caribbean, PNW, ICW, coastal or across an ocean anytime in 2017? I am available on short notice. See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details. Happy to lend a hand!

J24's are not real stable boats. Only to 90 deg. And with that, it makes them poor at both going to weather, & handling heavy conditions.

So you have to "pretend" that...

Sailing comprises wind propulsion of a craft by means of sails or other airfoils and steering it over water, ice or land, depending on the type of craft. A sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails by adjusting their angle with respect to the moving sailing craft and sometimes by adjusting the sail area. The force transmitted from the sails is resisted by forces from the hull, keel, and rudder of a sailing craft, by forces from skate runners for an iceboat, and by forces from wheels for a land sailing craft to allow steering a course on a point of sail with respect to the true wind.

While there are still some places in the world where sail-powered passenger, fishing and trading vessels are used, these craft have become rarer as internal combustion engines have become economically viable in even the poorest and most remote areas. In most countries sailing is enjoyed as a recreational activity or as a sport. Recreational sailing or yachting can be divided into racing...

Last Wednesday was the final day of an unusually mild spell of weather, for early January, but a strong westerly wind, gusting across the Lark Valley course, made scoring very tricky for the mid-week Stableford golfers at The Suffolk Club.

Craig Smart made the best of the difficult conditions, amassing 34 points off his 19 handicap, despite four blobs, to take top spot.

In runner-up spot was club president Peter Plumb with 31 points.

In third place, Ivan Snelling closed the gap on Jim Chapman at the top of the mid-week Order of Merit table.

Chapman still leads the table despite the wheels falling off his round on the 11th hole.

He was one over gross at that point, but eventually limped in with just 28 points.

The much-hyped snow forecast for the latter part of last week never materialised, locally, although conditions were still difficult for the golfers playing in competitions over the weekend.

On Saturday, the strong...

NEW YORK (AP) — From California to the Deep South to the Northeast, millions of Americans were contending with death and destruction from damaging January weather. Flooding, high winds and suspected tornadoes have rousted people from their homes. A deadly storm system tore across the Deep South, a nor'easter lashed the East Coast and rainfall records fell in California.

Some more details on the wild weather:


A powerful storm system that tore across the Deep South over the weekend killed 20 people, including 15 in south Georgia. Rescuers were going through stricken areas Monday, searching for possible survivors.

Patrick Marsh of the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, said 39 possible tornadoes were reported across the Southeast from early Saturday into Sunday evening.

Marsh said while the risk of tornadoes is strongest in the spring in the central U.S., it "never really goes to zero" for most of the year in the...

Western Europe will be under siege from a series of storms this week as locations from the United Kingdom to Spain brace for strong winds and rain.

In a dramatic shift from the largely tranquil weather so far this year, Dublin, London, Paris, Madrid and Lisbon could all have travel-disrupting weather as multiple Atlantic storms lash western Europe.

The initial threat for travel disruption will be on Thursday as the first storm takes a shot at western Europe.

The greatest impacts will be across northern Portugal and northern Spain where local downpours and wind gusts of 65-80 kph (40-50 mph) could result in widespread travel delays.

Rain showers and occasional gusts to 65 km/h (40 mph) are expected across northwestern France, southwestern England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland where some minor travel impacts are possible.

Another storm quickly approaching on Friday will target areas from Wales and England southward through...

Wind is an extremely important factor that affects both general sailing and Naval Combat. Learning to use the wind is part of learning to play the game, especially on the higher Difficulty levels.

This article discusses how wind affects sailing. For extreme wind conditions like storms, please read the Weather article.

Wind is the movement of large quantities of air from one place to another, resulting from pressure differences across vast areas. Mankind learned to harness the power of wind using Sails, both on land (windmills) and on sea (sailing ships).

Ships make use of the wind through their Sails. The sail, a big piece of fabric, is stretched like a big net that "traps" the wind. The pressure the wind exerts on a sail is used to drag along whatever that sail is connected to - I.E. the ship itself. Without wind to push at it, a sail is useless.

Therefore, sailing ships are almost entirely dependent on wind for propulsion. While in the real world, many...

Words Peter Hart // Photos Hart Photography

With winter storms being the main thread in this issue, it’s only fitting that Peter Hart should fall in line and examine the technical challenges of sailing in strong winds.

Those with a passing interest in pedagogy will be familiar with various teaching styles that coaches employ depending on the environment, the complexity of the move and who stands before them. For example there’s the intellectual approach involving detailed technical explanations for people who like words and won’t allow themselves to attempt anything remotely risky until they fully understand the mechanics. There’s the ‘monkey see, monkey do’ approach’ a.k.a. ‘mirror learning.’ It works for those who like to see the skill in its entirety and then just follow and imitate. It’s what kids do so naturally. And it’s what adults should do – and would do if they hadn’t got a mortgage.

A lesser known coaching approach but arguably the most effective in...

Two main tips (note that I used to run in Wellington, NZ which is famed for both its hills and its wind).

Firstly, a headwind is basically a hill you can't see - treat it that way. Techniques like small, quick steps to preserve momentum are most useful.

Secondly, for a sufficiently strong wind you can draft off people. Tuck in behind someone in front and let them tack the brunt of it.

No, I don't think a pack would have helped. Packs are about water.

Aside, I once did the headwind trick in a race. It was the 10km of a tri and I'm very much a back-of-the-packer. I was tussling with one guy with the lead changing a lot. This was in Wellington and very windy that day so I gave up and just huddled behind him until we rounded the last headland. Then I just pulled past him and cross the line in...

Tip #1: Don’t do it!!!

Okay, I’m just kidding… But after today, windy running was on my mind. Las Vegas gets some rip-roaring winds and today was a particularly gusty day. All day we have been under a wind advisory, winds have been blowing at 30-40mph with gusts over 60mph. As I listened to the winds howling and rattle my backyard gates, I was getting nervous about heading out for my run at Fleet Feet. Watching the trees bend in crazy directions wasn’t helping to encourage me. So instead of getting discouraged, I took to research!

Here are some REAL tips for running in the wind:

1. Start your run heading into the wind.
This will provide more resistance on the first half of your run; then during the second half when you are a little more fatigued you can use the wind to propel you forward instead of straining against it!

2. Recognize that your pace will be different.

For months you have put in hours of work diligently following your marathon training schedule. You have pushed through those mental barriers. Given up hours of socializing with friends.

Now, with just a few days to go, the weather forecast shows strong winds.

Your race plan crumbles before your eyes. Running into a headwind for a marathon does not sound fun.

How is running in windy conditions going to affect my race?

How will running into a 10 mph wind, 15 mph wind, 20 mph wind slow me down?

Any runner, especially one who lives out in the country, up in the mountains, or along the expansive plains of the Midwest, knows how wind affects performance.

What we’ll try to do today is look into running in windy weather and see if we can come up with a “rule of thumb” for wind resistance and running performance.

As we all know too well:

If the wind is pushing me, it can only mean one thing, on the way back I will be running into a...

Everybody likes a little help sometimes, and a stiff wind at your back can make you feel like you're flying. Trouble is, if you have the wind at your back on one half of your run, you have to battle it on the other half. And it turns out that Mother Nature tends to the fickle side: a headwind slows you down more than a tailwind speeds you up. Studies have determined that a 10 mph tailwind will nudge you ahead about 5 percent faster, while a 10 mph headwind slows you down by about 8 percent.

When you have the wind behind you, revel in your speed. But when you're running into it, don't hold yourself to your normal training speed, which would cost you that extra 8 percent effort to maintain. Instead, slow down a bit, and you will still get the same benefit as you would from your normal pace.

Not that you're completely helpless when it comes to battling a headwind. You can adjust your running style slightly to make...

When winds approach storm force, clearly you need to take steps to stay safe on your sailboat. Typically you first reef the sails or switch to storm sails. You might then prepare to heave to, run off downwind, or lie ahull.

In many cases, however, the wind is becoming stronger but does not yet require storm tactics. As the wind builds, usually the sailboat is heeling further and weather helm (the tendency of the boat to head up into the wind) is becoming more problematic. In these cases, there are other sail adjustments you can make to reduce heeling and maintain better control of the boat. Try the following steps when conditions are not bad enough yet to reef or use other storm tactics:

Move the traveler down. When sailing close-hauled, stronger wind or gusts will cause the boat to heel far over and head up into the wind, making control more difficult. Instead of moving the traveler up to center the boom as you would in lighter wind, move it...
