Recommended Bag Size for 6+ months in the PNW?

Opinions on drop keel sailboats please

We are trying to decide if a swing keel sailboat is a good idea or a terrible one. I’ve heard absolute horror stories about keels breaking off or the cable snapping and the keel swinging back too fast and hitting the hull and sinking the boat. 65 more words

Is it feasible to work as a crew on a charter yacht next summer with only recreational experience?

I'm currently a US college student with lifelong sailing experience and recently expanded to college sailing and summer racing. I think it would be really cool to spend next summer as a crew on a charter yacht (sail ideally, but motor would also be cool) ideally in the med since that seems to be the most popular place. 94 more words
