Default Clear Skies & Following Seas ...

Every now and then someone wishes the above to someone else. I don't understand it.

In small boat sailing, there is nothing worse -- to my way of thinking -- than a following sea. There's no apparent breeze (read that, it gets hot). On the Chesapeake Bay, at least, it is black fly heaven.

Do you suppose it just SOUNDS GOOD? Or is there something I'm missing?

pamda, who wishes that everyone's reaches will be broad.

Pamda..
I recall that "saying" as Clear Skies and Gentle Breezes, but I haven't been wrong yet this year, so this could be THAT time.

Regards,
Kuki

I've always been told that "following seas" meant that you were traveling with the current, not against it. It seems to make sense...

I thought it was "calm seas".

Pamda -alternatrively, I guess you can start wishing people "stormy skies and rough seas." You can see what type of response you get from that.
