Dangers Of Sailing

Remember when you’re on the water safety is the number one priority. Last week two sailors were forced to shore by the Coast Guard. To see the whole story go to: Missing sailors found: 'We didn't know what we were getting into.For safety tips check out

They had thought about this for a year and this was the outcome. It seem that anyone who spent an hour or 2 on one of the sailing forums would know that you need basic safety items. A life jacket and a jar of peanut butter is a good start. I carry more safety gear on my belt than the had on their entire boat. Sounds like a good submission for the Darwin award.

One danger of sailing: No wind and you are out of fuel...

Yes, these two morons actually had video aboard showing one of them reading "Sailing for Dummies" while on the boat. Unfortunately, we need a bit more bleach in the shallow end of the gene pool.

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.

Putting aside leaving Avalon being ill-equip'ed, they did pretty good for a couple of rookie kids. They hoped a train for a 8hr trip to So. Ca., picked up a boat for 2 grand on the Island, sailed the ill-equiped boat 200 plus nm through some nasty water, including a heavily traveled shipping lane, past Pt Conception to Pt San Luis.

Lets hope the adventure continues on as a safe one


And why the hell does anyone that starts off on the wrong foot gets labeled a moron or is nominated for the Darwins golden fickle of fate award

One of the danger's of sailing. If you are weak of character.

Sailing will make you quit good jobs(Time) and write bad checks (parts) just to go sailing.
