Sailing into the Bermuda triangle

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has sailed into the Bermuda triangle and if so was it safe?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The Bermuda Triangle is transited every day by ships, planes and yachts.
There was no such thing called the "Bermuda Triangle" until a guy wrote a book about it in the late 1940s. All the other books written since then are based on the first book.
It does make a good scary story to tell around a camp fire or on a dark night at anchor for the kids and other superstitious people.
Muh ha ha ha! Is the demon's laugher that you hear.

There is a ghost of a chance if they have a strong spirit. Or been drinking strong spirits.

Bermuda triangle, isn’t that what you call a Brazilian that’s grown back.
