These unappreciative Monday Night Armchair Sailors make me sick!
Here on Sailnet, they simply don't appreciate the amazing opportunity to worship at the feet of these Ocean Giants, amazing geniuses who are capable of fantastic feats of superhuman gallantry by actually SAILING IN THE OCEAN AWAY FROM LAND!!!
Anyone who can SAIL IN THE OCEAN AWAY FROM LAND deserves our everlasting respect and admiration!
By the way, this was no mere gale that surprised a bunch of unprepared geriatric picnic sailors on boats that were too big for them to handle, IT WAS A FULL BLOWN HURRICANE, capable of smashing boats instantly in the Gulfstream, rendering genuine real sailors into quivering, blood-puking, EPIRB-activating survivalists, you damn Monday Night Armchair Sailors!
Now, take some Blue Water Sailing courses and have some respect for your superiors!
Some here don't appear to appreciate your cheekiness James but I, for one, do.
