Seriously Welshman if this is the worst you have to worry about, I'd open a bottle of your favorite drink and toast your good fortune to an uneventful trip.
I never wear my kilt while sailing, it affects my trim!

Who said this was the worst I had to worry about?

I didn't mention those pesky nuisances, paddling their dinghies up to me at anchor, making 'small talk' and generally being annoying.

What about joining 'friends' for dinner on their boat and having to bring my own beer?

Not to mention our view of the gorgeous celestial vistas being constantly interrupted by all of those damned shooting stars of the Perseids.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
