Don't capsize and don't go out to sail in the rain.
Seriously, getting wet is part of the fun when sailing with small boats. That is why my wife never hates it. Like OtterGreen says, get a dry bag if you must for your stuff.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
