Below there are some questions you face from time to time. The given answers are my personal opinions and thoughts that may be incorrect or inaccurate.
What is this site about?
You are reading Hyvässä Slöörissä blog which has stories and information about cruising on sailing dinghies, also known as gunkholing. Most of the content is about sailing in the Finnish waters but some experiences have been gained abroad too. Currently the primary sailing vessel is a Wayfarer dinghy, called as Sarastus. In addition to it, SCAMP dinghy is being built. The site consists of the blog which is in chronological order and some pages, accessible with top menu, that have their own structure or order. The primary language of the site is Finnish but most of the content is translated to English too. The site is a personal non-profit project.
What does the site’s name mean?
The name of the blog is a Finnish nautical expression which can be translated as nicely broad reached. In a broad reach, the wind is coming from behind the sailing craft at an angle. For many sailors broad reach is the favorite point of sail because of speed and ease.
(more to be translated from the Finnish page)
Is sailing dinghy suitable for cruising with family?
This is a question without a single correct answer because it depends on your family, skipper experience and sailing waters. You have to do the risk analysis by yourself. Myself I started family dinghy sailing in the Finnish landland when the children were teenagers, and I had plenty of sailing prior experience.
How can I subscribe to the blog
In my opinion the best way to follow the blog is to use an RSS-based application or service that allow you to follow uncountable number of other blogs too. Here are some options:
Getting into social media isn’t planned because the rat race of begging for attention would require a lot of effort there. Also, according to the rumors, nowadays people value offline time more which is healthier for human mind too.
