What, you don't like the new yatching exercise plan??

I sleep like a log on the boat, even the old one but I'm wide awake the instant something changes. Don't mind at all getting up and checking out the lay of the land in the middle of the night however. Some of my favourite times onboard have been sitting on deck at two in the morning , dead calm and an otherwise empty anchorage. Not a unique experience I know but nonetheless looverly.
I love all the stars you can see from the deck of a boat at night, which are normally obscured by the light pollution of cities and such.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
