What is on your gift list? Log-In to Post/Reply

The holiday season has begun, and now is a good time to get caught up on all the “must have” sailing gear. But what are these items? As we all are trying to figure out what we want, and what others want, we wanted the Scuttlebutt readers to help by commenting on the items they are considering for their sailing gift list.

Reply to this thread to post your list. Your gift list can be realistic, or it can a dream list. After you post your list, you can edit it later as needed, and even use the short-cut link to email your list to those people who are wondering what you want (only one list per person).

As a bonus, Scuttlebutt will randomly pick one gift list each week (for six weeks) and provide a $50 gift certificate for the winner to spend at any of the companies that are included as aClub Supplier on the Scuttlebutt website.
Note: Winners can win only once; the six gift certificates must be used at six different companies; gift lists must be sailing oriented.

Angelic I have been especially good this year and want West Marine or Layline certificates. That way I can get plenty of what I need for any regatta. Specific items would be:

McLube
High tech lines
Anything Sunfish
Stuff for the High School team(ie PFD's and Foulies)

Hard to pinpoint just a few items. That is why the certificates work best.

Maybe seeing Alicia in her new Bikini would be nice also.Blush

I would also like to see more sailors doing race committee and judging in 2007. Had to throw something like that in.

Also... ok-layers and layers of clothing for the winter series. A trip to the pro-am next year. A fully funded Melges 24 campaign (if anyone interested in sponsoring this please let me know). World peace (working on the Kharma angle).Angelic
Sail Often and have fun

What I really want for Christmas:

May be sung to the tune of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”

12 Optimist Dinghies
11 canoes, rowboats and kayaks
10 volunteer instructors (US Sailing certified, of course!)
9 racing markers w/ line and anchor
8 Access Dinghies
7 days of sunshine and wind (to use at my discretion)
6 Club 420s
5 Flying Scots
4 Martin 16’s (outfitted for “full-access”)
3 well heeled, well connected, like-minded locals for Board of Directors
2 RIBs w/ outboards
1 paying job to sustain me until I get this up and running!

What I’m giving:

A nice “full access” community sailing center for ALL the people of Chattanooga. (Little known fact – Chattanooga had the world’s largest active Snipe fleet with over 50 boats racing each weekend! It was the Snipe International Headquarters, home of Mclaughlin Snipes and now is home of Mclaughlin Optimist).

Hmmmm...on the reasonable side, tickets for strictly sail in Chicago, some Keen Venice sandals, submersible casing/bag for my digital camera, new drytop and drypants that can be worn together as drysuit or separate, a marine grade flexible solar panel/charger.

On the more "wishful" side of wish-list...a micro or racemaster Tacktick compass, a new Laser or Lightning would be nice Smile, a wind/weather station and webcam for the sail club would be great...hmmm, a new fleet of club/junior program boats would just rock.

Dear Santabutt,

I would like a new Vangard Laser – Oceanic blue

My dad will need one of those cool “Eastport 32” coach boats with the drop down tailgate so I do not have to tow out to the race course.
It will need a few extra’s:
A couple of those weather buoys from Pyacht, with laptop and software
B&G wind instruments with Hercules performance processor.
A subscription to SIRIUS satellite radio for live weather updates
Bazooka Marine Tubby Tower Speakers with subwoofer (see SIRIUS above)
A Playstation 3 (for the ride out to the race course)
A Raymarine 45 STV satellite antenna and subscription to DirecTV – so Dad does not miss football games on Sunday.
Fishing rods – for no wind days
A wet bar with ice making machine (for Dad!)

I know I have not been a very good boy this year, but next year I will try harder.

Oh by the way my little sister wants a new Vangard opti.

Dear SantaButt,

I have been a very good "winch wench" this year. My wish list is short, but if fulfilled, will be great fun!

First, I wish to attend the "Women on the Water Week" in Virgin Gorda sponsored by the BEYC and West Marine January 6 - 13, 2007. Secondly, a gift certificate to Camet International for accessories would ensure that I am well-prepared for the exciting adventures of that week.

I have visions of fair winds, white sand and aqua water dancing in my head!

Cool

If you want to have sailing fun during the winter: get yourself a Micro Magic. In Holland almost 1900 boats have been registered to race. Fleets are also growing in Spain, France, Switserland, Portugal and Germany. UK website is starting up now: http://sailuk.org This is the cheapest and most fun way of sailing there is. No costs, no damage, pure racing adrenaline when competing with 20 boats at one time. 20 starts a day. International site: http://micromagic.info

Defenitely the best gift for Christamas there is!



This is not a commercial posting: I started the class in 2001 and want it also to become more international. It should.

Dear Santa.

I sail an Ultimate 20 in Ottawa. Unfortunately I will be moving away from our fleet of six boats to a smaller town where there are no Ultimate 20s. So for Christmas I would like 4 Ultimate 20s and a trailer and a truck to tow them. That way there will always be a fleet of Ultimate 20s when I go sailing.


Say hi to Mrs. Claus for me.

Re: [The Publisher] What is on your gift list? [In reply to] Log-In to Post/Reply

All I'm asking for is a bit more time to take my wife out sailing (perhaps this should be a New Year's resolution). She's willing to try and to learn. This past year the (very) few times that we were on the water, there was NO WIND. We sat and bobbed there literally for hours in the hot sun on a Force 5. She's still willing to give it another go. Being an hour-plus south of the Finger Lakes with virtually no sailable water nearby limits the opportunity for spur-of-the-moment "Let's go sailing" jaunts. Maybe Santabutt can work out a text message system from Sail Flow to my cell whenever conditions will be favorable in central NY.
Fair winds to all, and to all, sailing's delights.

What is on your gift list? [In reply to] Log-In to Post/Reply

I need a new mooring set-up for a friend in Massachusetts who wants to moor his Sanford Alerion in front of my house here in Maine. He'll come up on weekends to sail her, but of course I'll have to make sure everyhting works during the week, don't you know!

Because I'll be so busy sailing his boat during the week, I'll need a new boom tent for my Shields to keep her dry until it's her turn to go out on the weekends and kick the other boat's ass.

My wife wants this boat so she can come out and act as photo boat and informal RC for our match racing: http://tinyurl.com/y4clxz

Dear SantaButt,

As you know I didn't start sailing until my early 30's and after thirty years of exposure to PHRF, IOR, and lots of one design racing - I still have alot to learn.

So, please give me an extra 20 years so that I can continue sailing my Etchells competitively, and maybe even wining a race or two at the Biscayne Bay annual Jaguar Cup and/or winning the club championship at Macatawa Bay.

And even if I don't win either, just being out there is gift enough.

Thanks,

J.D. Stone USA 1171

Dear Santabutt:

Last summer, not long after arriving, I attended a "Crew Match" party here in Portland, Maine (talk about a GREAT way to get people interested in sailing). Despite never having sailed before, I was welcomed aboard a Beneteau 456 and spend the summer sailing offshore up and down the Maine coast. At 40, I've found a real passion in life! I eat, sleep, talk, and dream sailing!

Now I'm "frostbiting" in a yngling series. Besides wishing for head to toe cold weather gear, I'd love the wisdom of 20 years of sailing experience. Reckon you've got room in your bag for that?

I'll be graduating from Georgia Tech tomorrow, after having put Sailing on a back burner for the last 3+ years. I just can't wait to get back on a boat, so this year I am asking for a full wet suit or dry suit from SantaButt, so that I can compete in the Laser winter series.

Dear St. SantaButt:

Please deliver a lightweight but stong Fortress anchor so my daughter and I can sleep safely on the hook while visions of perfect 12kt days dance in our heads.
If you run out of Fortress anchors, I'll take a windlass, but I'd rather not have all that weight on the bow.

Thanks,
Sailing Mom

We could also use a new main...

Re: [The Publisher] What is on your gift list? [In reply to] Log-In to Post/Reply

My gift wish for Christmas is just peace on earth (and at the starting line, finish line and all roundings). And also between the bow and helm--especially when the wind shifts six boat-lengths before the rounding. And between the main-trimmer and all the experts on the rail. And finally, peace in the protest hearings and PHRF rating committees. That's my gift list, but my poor ol' boat needs new standing rigging and sails, so she wishes for those new high-tech lines that seem to be replacing rod-rigging and a new #1, and maybe a tuck in her old but tested true main. And maybe as stocking stuffers some new light-weight blocks to replace the battered and bent ones (especially the main-sheet triple that just barely survived the pearl-dive off the north coast of Oahu). (And as a reminder to Santa, I put out a really good Port along with the large plate of double-fudge brownies.)

Our Junior Sailing program could use a few things:
  • Some of those cool pins that hold the wheels on Seitech dollies to replace the bent nails that are in half of our dollies
  • A new Laser sail to replace the one that blew out last year so the kids won't borrow mine
  • A couple of floating spinnaker poles for the 420s so the kids won't try to go diving for them
  • Four donated used Optis for the kids who can not afford them - with dollies, please
  • A lightly used 16 foot RIB with a serviceable engine and roadworthy trailer for the coaches
  • Two Lasers with full and radial rigs; non-leaky used ones would be fine
  • The Big One - three 29ers so that we can keep the kids interested once they have learned to sail 420s

Santa already knows we don't need better kids or better parents; we are fine with the great folks we already have.
