Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

When you're out sailing, be grateful - be truely grateful. For you are able to do what many of the folks back on shore gazing out to sea only ever dream of.

"To me, nothing made by man is more beautiful than a sailboat under way in fine weather, and to be on that sailboat is to be as close to heaven as I expect to get. It is unalloyed happiness."

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

Its supposed to be fun.

As Captain, you are responsible for the safety of those you bring on your boat.

To make sure everyone stays safe you have to learn the skills and develop the judgement to stay within your capabilites as they grow, (especially in those times when it stops being fun.)

If you are doing it right, this is a continuous process.

It's likely not as hard as you think, if it ain't going to kill you, give it a try.

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

Great thread, Med. perfect for newbies like me.

While I'm a novice sailor, I have been hanging around here for about six months so I think I have one. When you have a maritime law question, ask Jack.
