There's a lot of delivery skipper bravado these days. Doesn't matter the weather we can do it, we're delivery skippers.

Like its something totally different from being a cruisng skipper? Like the weather abates, or the seas arnt as rough? Or delivery skippers make better decisions?

And why the word "delivery"? does that make you stronger, tougher than the word "passage", or "cruise"?

Its not been a good 12 months for the so called "professionals" what with the Bounty et al...
