As serious sailors and cruisers I hope we all are spending the time to go over situations that could be serious to you and your crew. Always be thinking, observing, spend time to " WHAT IF?"

And I thought I was the only one to do that kind of "" WHAT IF?".

In fact one of the secrets for solo sailing is to think in advance every move you have to do and the right sequence. As most things in life it's easy: You only have to know what to do next and do it as quick as you can. As in life, knowing "what to do next?" and the right sequence is more hard than it seems and requires a fair amount of thought. In an emergency it is not a good time to think what to do next.
