When sailing at night in a busy harbor or channels, do not scan each direction to quickly, you will miss the flashing marker. I try and make an effort to stay at each direction of more than 5 to 6 sec before moving into a different quadrant.
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.
