Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...
Its supposed to be fun.
As Captain, you are responsible for the safety of those you bring on your boat.
To make sure everyone stays safe you have to learn the skills and develop the judgement to stay within your capabilites as they grow, (especially in those times when it stops being fun.)
If you are doing it right, this is a continuous process.
