Thanks for the feedback guys. Especially from Giu, as that was interesting stuff. By the way Giu, pass my thanks on to your Portuguese bretheren for concocting Madiera as I have recently discovered how interesting that can be - another wonderful Portuguese contribution to seafaring!
I must say that I planned to depart from my home port on Thursday the 12th purely in the spirit of keeping with tradition and superstition (and having fun with it). I won't lose any sleep because I'll be leaving a temporary stop on Friday the 13th for my destination, but I was curious to see how this was interpreted by other sailors.
My question was an effort to find out if the superstition refers only to your initial cruise departure, or does it regard "any" sort of departure on a Friday.
