Above me, our sails are stretched out
     like arms, catching the wind.
Their gentle curves are our wings,
     arching gracefully,
     greeting the clouds.

One of the best things I remember about voyaging on the Leeuwin is taking the night watch. If the ship is under way, there are about eleven or twelve people on total on watch at one time, and two people at a time go down to the bow of the ship to look out for anything coming up in her way. Bow watch at night is fantastic - sometimes really quiet and peaceful, other times exciting and a bit scarey, if the seas are rough. Sometimes when you look down, you can see luminescent shrimp in the water. When the waves break against the sides of the ship, the shrimp luminesce with a greenish light. It's really cool to see these hundreds of shining green specks in the water, and then to look up and see the stars in the sky (so many more than you can see in the city). It's like the stars are reflected in the water, but the water is foaming all about the bow.
Once we were in the middle watch - from midnight till four in the morning -  and we were tacking ship. I

Wanna join the club?
We'd love to have you! Just send a note to the club saying you'd like to join. If you feel so inclined, send a funny sailing anecdote that I can post up, too.
Note: If you watch the club but don't send a note, I will assume you don't want to join, so please remember to do this.

To make a submission, send a note to the club with a link to the art you'd like to submit along with anything about the original you'd like to change (e.g. the description, category etc.)


:eyes: Avatar competition! Design an avatar, send it in, and you guys can vote on the best one. (Although the avatar we have now is cool, we really do need a new one cos this is ripped from Leeuwin's page and it probably isn't strictly legal.)

:star: Check out our news and links page!

:star: Got a sailing question? Maybe one of the geniuses here at the sailing club can help you out.

Fair Winds!

A sailing club ah. I raced a 41 footer for 15 years on lake Erie. We were out of Cleveland Ohio. I'll see if I can dig up some old photo and send them over.

how cool! This looks like an interesting place. I'd join, except that I'm so random that I'd forget to participate. But I'd definitely like to watch for some great sailing pictures! Hope that's okay ^^;. Fair winds!
