Funny Finds: Sail Now

It’s no question that the London Boat Show is talk of the town this week. It’s not as much fun, however, for the boat lovers that can’t be there.

However, there’s not use feeling like a lowly landlubber, as we’ve got a great Funny Find to cheer you up.

Introducing Sail Now – a great curation of everything from sailing jokes to a ‘live aboard simulator’. As well as capturing everything that’s great about dry humour, Sail Now also promotes Safety in Sailing, and offers great tips on everything from spotting cloud types to tying different knots. Talk about multitasking!

If you require further convincing, here are a few samples of the ‘Jokes’ page, which masquerades as a list of definitions.

Sailing – The fine art of getting wet and becoming ill, while going nowhere slowly at great expense (equivalent to standing in a cold shower, fully clothed, throwing up, and tearing up $100 bills, while a bunch of other people watch you).

Crew – Heavy, stationary objects used on shipboard to hold down charts, anchor cushions in place and dampen sudden movements of the boom.

Bottom paint – What you get when the cockpit seats have just been painted.

Port – A fine wine, always stowed on the left side of the boat.

Swell – A wave that's just great.
You can laugh away to the rest of the list by clicking here.

Feeling better now? We certainly hope so!
