Smooth sail

Smooth sail in flat seas, constant wind. Here heeling is on the edge, and towards the end, my shoe gets wet

This is in front of the Torre de Belém, in Lisbon.

That just shows you his sailing skills are slacking... he's out of practice from too much time cruising on that fat boat of his. Or he was feeling lazy... your choice.

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.
