The fact that the Singlehanded Sailing Society’s annual Three Bridge Fiasco in January, raced only by singlehanded or doublehanded boats, is the largest race in the country is testament to the attraction of shorthanded sailing. At a time when organized racing has been curtailed and sailing with household members is the current guideline, we thought we’d remind you of the thoughts Webb Chiles shared with Latitude 38 readers.
Last fall, six-time solo circumnavigator Webb Chiles spoke at the Richmond Yacht Club. He then explained “Why I sail,” in our November issue. If you’re used to sailing with a crew and are now sailing solo, you’ll find Webb’s perspective good to bring along for the ride.
