We've met a lot of cruisers who've begun sailing late in life. Tough to learn seamanship without experience but to their credit they seem proficient and cautious.^^ nice, Ordered, thanks
"the evidence shows casualties that have been considered acts of god probably resulted from an ignorance or neglect of age-old practices of seamanship."
Yea, often the case when you look closely. There is definitely 'bad luck happened', but seamanship is designed to see you thru most of it.
