peace on the water
This is not sailing advice as I am less experienced in saling than you. Just a few phylosophical thoughts:
For me, sailing is a lot about escaping. If you are going to fuss about how does your boat look like, is your sailing looking good, do you have the right certificates.... than you are taking to sea the very same things you wanted to escape from on land.
The seas are relaxing. Sailng is all about relaxing. (I know racers have other priorities, but this is my view)
Heavy weather situations apart, there is nothing a calm, sensible person can do wrong with a sailng boat. If in doubt, point to the wind, stop, and think.
And ignore the young lads racing past with their cats or flying moths.
May you always have good winds!
