Your ONE piece of wisdom...
Perhaps it's spring, but there appear to be quite a few new folks gazing towards the water here on Sailnet. There is also quite a bit of salty wisdom around here as well, and one of the great things about Sailnet is that wisdom, experience and advice are freely shared over long discussions.
For those that wish to partake, here is a space to post the ONE piece of advice that you think is most important to communicate. Only ONE piece of advice allowed and it must be short. The U/W school of medicine has a simmilar tradition, passing information from graduates to newbies. Why so short, why only one? Because like Haiku, it forces the mind to filter out what is not necessary and what is left is pure.

Have at it!
