Tan line

Well it doesn't happen often but while running errands I didn't grab a watch. Looked down at my wrist and there it was like the moon in the sky a giant white wrist. This Florida boy needs to take off his watch more often at the beach. That is all!

I believe it's simply referred to as a "watch mark."

Having just spent a week sailing off the coast of Dalmatia, every day in the sun all day long, I now have a watch mark and a light bandanna (worn as a headband) mark - guess that's the problem when one has (fairly) long hair and a complete inability to go anywhere without a watch (seriously, leaving home without a watch is like leaving without the pants on).

Here's the culprit behind the watch mark:

I'm nutty for tan lines, but it has nothing to do with watches.

Rarely happens to me either. Captured this for WURW a couple years ago for just such an eventuality. Hairs don't grow there anymore.

Two years till I get me license for these. This, save for drinking and having fun, was also intended to give me some hours of experience required to apply for a sea yacht helmsman's license. Still got a radio operator and navigator courses ahead of me, then a theory exam, then a maneuvers exam.
But when I do get it, why not.

Well, the boat was nice - a Bavaria 38. They're comfortable, but the problem with them is that they handle worse than a mule with a limp. When you're turning the wheel, it's more a plea than a command to that thing. But I did squeeze 7.5 knots out of it on a properly windy day. The week was great, only one evening spent sober (couldn't drink during the day, could I...) - guess I can call it time bloody well spent, then.
