Possibly one of the best experiences an individual can have would be to sail bare. There are a few reasons for this. The first is that should one be able to sail un clothed then the weather would need to be warm and bright to make the prospect inviting, additionally if one is able to sail, then some wind will be getting itself know as well as the boat will be leaning to it . Even in colder climes when I've had to wear clothes to ward off the elements I never tire of the miracle that is clearly a sailing vessel merely using the wind to drive through the sea. Sorry I digress, anyway another variable, ( unless one is a serious exhibitionist) is that there is not going to be a great deal of other vessels around and for me an empty sea is a happy sea. Whether there are other folks on board, then if ones relationship to them WOn't be strained by sharing such an intimate encounter, it might even be accentuating.
Sailing can be a physically demanding pastime, frequently one has to move quickly, its not until one has had the delight of going without clothing does one realise how confining garments are. When I was on my way (singlehanded) back across the Atlantic in my beaten up schooner "Gloria" the the most productive sail was one that went by the name of "the fishermans" this four sided stone went at the top between both masts and was astonishingly powerful in light airs. The drawback was that when the wind piped up it had to come down. I had grown quite tired of this caper as well as the subsequent sewing up of rips that came of it. This one special time it did it, the entire sail blew forwards and wrapped itself around the foremast top, I understood that in a very brief time it'd be rent beyond repair and I scaled the mast to free it. Wearing nothing but a suntan I was amazed how easy it was. It actually was a revelation. How well this system would decrease in Solent sailing circles I dont know, I daresay the RYA and health and safety would have at least something to say on the issue!
Another amazing thing about only wearing ones skin is that it is an inescapable part of sailing that from time to time a bit of the wet things will throw itself at you. In the event you are wearing clothes they will get wet, and as its sea water, the salt will then cease the clothing from ever properly drying until it is rinsed with fresh water. Fresh water could be extremely valuable on a sailing boat far from land, it's not to be squandered in rinsing out clothing. So if one will not wear any, it will not get dirty and need washing does it? Along with all these amazing gains one gets a nice even tan, what could possibly be better?)
