Well,,, it has to be sailing for me;)

Second time out by myself (inland man made salt water lake) and both times I stayed dry,,, didn't capsize!!!!

Mind you there was f'all wind on both occasions;);)

I've sailed since birth noz. I've got a mirror dinghy and a small 23' yacht which isn't finished yet. Think you said other day you went out in a topper or laser? Very nippy fun boats. Try an international canoe lol they are half underwater when still and when they get going they rise up to normal level.

When I was about 8 or 9 I sailed the mirror dinghy round the isle of Sheppey (about 20 miles I believe) to raise money for the RNLI and we got a day out on the lifeboats. Great fun and luckily only time I've ever been on a lifeboat.

Were sailing to isle of Wight from Brighton in a few weeks, that'll be good fun 4 adults and 3 kids on a 26' catamaran.

Well Matty, I was brought up on an island in North Wales and my Dad had a couple of catamarans - 21' the biggest one. Great fun, we were always out on it.

When I return to N wales I intend to get a sailing boat of some sort

Hmm I am seriously thinking about the sea right now. The last boat I had was a Dell Quay Dory 17' with Evinrude 70 2 stroke. It was great fun - BUT -

I'll be over there from 21st to 28th August mate. It's going to be the yearly holiday lol. Were go bembridge, ryde, cowes and all round the island. Probably go black gang chime as we have for the past few years and the kids love it. Plus loads of fishing.

My eldest went fishing with his mums friends yesterday at battle (wylands farm) in Hastings and caught 42 carp only 6lb and under but he's obcessed with fishing. Can't complain as he got it from me lol.

Ill be on forum everyday as usual when on holiday so if were near it would be good to meet up.

You over there to work mate?

Cheers

"Water sports" is the closest I could find to Sailing.

 

and there's no box for hill walking.

So you regularly do a 10 mile walk down the street that includes over 3000 feet of ascent then?

Never seen this before, have voted for rock climbing and running, and other.

The other being surfing, which I guess is classed as watersports, but that has an alternative meaning which doesn't 'float my boat'!
