I am not superstitious, but I probably should be given how little actual sailing I've done and how frequently certain superstitions have been fulfilled:

Left on first overnight trip with family on a Friday evening- ran aground, spent the whole night getting her off.

On my first boat we set out for an underway christening- the bottle failed to break on the first swing- not long after that the wind picked up, the mast came down, the engine failed and we drifted in the rocks.
