Man has always been drawn to the sea, but it is an unnatural setting for us. A place of great danger; tides, currents, waves, wind. Each presenting their own hazards; none of which can be ignored. The slightest lapse of judgement maybe a mistake you may never recover from. A good sailor doesn't fight against these elements. A good sailor works with them using them to his advantage while others less fortunate, might be cast adrift...often in several pieces, but he always comes home safely.
