To clean this thread up a bit, let me say, "Good post!!"
Inspite her newbie status I think the author of this piece demonstrates great insight in her description of sailing:
"You find yourself at sea, awash in the natural world, and yet at the same time you find yourself immured in a vigilant kind of properness, a clear sense of how things should be. It’s not just a matter of proper names. It’s a matter of proper actions and responses, without which there is a world of trouble. There is something deeply ethical about it..."
As Henry Higgins said, " I think she's got it! By George, I think she's got it!"
