Fair enough - so I submit the following. Despite the old quote that there's nothing more useless than a serving Naval Officer on a sailboat, I actually am one (a serving Naval Officer, not useless). I will take and follow the orders of the captain on the boat. Really, I'm hoping to learn as much as I can from them - getting the confidence and experience sailing outside is as important (if not more important) than delivering the boat.

And I'm providing rum.
