Re: Reality at Sea - For Cruisers, Singlehanders, and Normal People.
It's good to be humble and listen to advice but you have to be cocky. You hve to have a big ego, lots of self esteem and be cocky. If not you will never leave.
Plus, most people tell you not to go, probably because they feel they have to have crew, and if someone singlehands it, it minimizes their accomplishment. So they call it luck, or whatever. If you don't have hubris you'll just sit at home second guessing everything.
This guy, while I didn't watch everything, left, made some mistakes, and made it to Bermuda. So he was tired for six days. Lesson here? Just do it.
