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.

Loved it! It reminded me of the pristine mid-Atlantic air. Up forward in the galley, someone opens a tin of tuna fish or peanut butter, and instantly the crew in the cockpit can smell it! Lands people often think (wrongly) that the air must smell like the seaside...that tangy smell of decaying kelp etc., but it doesn't. Once any distance offshore the air is antiseptically clean. Thanks for the link.

Just saw the rest last night. Man, that dude in the row boat - Graham Walters! INSANE! And he made it across! Talk about stones.

I would have loved to have seen that doc!

I think he captured the hours and hours of monotony quite well but where are the moments of sheer terror? Man I can't wait to go. Someday. I'm sure the experience is much different on a sailboat that on an aircraft carrier.

They were certainly blessed with a perfect weather window
