How To Sail A Sailboat

1. Figure out where you want to go.
2. Whichever way it is, do NOT aim the sailboat in that direction.
3. Aim the sailboat in some other direction.
4. Trust me, this is the way sailboaters do it.
5. They are heavy drinkers.

Dave Barry
Sailing - The fine art of slowly going nowhere
at great expense while being cold, wet and miserable.

Irv Heller
The best kind of boat is one that:
* has a bathroom, and
* somebody else has paid for.

Dave Barry
It's scary to have a 30 foot wave chasing you.
If you are steering, you don't look back.
The crew looks back for you, and you watch their faces.
When they look straight up, then get ready!

Magnus Olsson
Twenty years from now,
you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than those you did.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from safe harbor.
Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain
There is a rule in sailing
where the more maneuverable ship
should give way to the less maneuverable craft.
I think this is sometimes a good rule
to follow in human relationships as well.
