Re: Sailing sayings

How about:

You're going where? ... In that!?!

or

Sailing is dangerous! You're going to die out there!

or

Are you f-ckin' crazy?!?!?

Gonna have to check before we head to Central or South America...

Yeah. As an adolescent my best mate and me talked each other into selling all our prized possessions, to go halves on a 20' offshore-capable sailing yacht. The only sailing rules information we had was a book for beginning sailors, about which I remember only the following:

1) It had a nice blue cover and excellent, evocative drawings
2) It was published in the US
3) From it, we learned the rule "Red Right Returning", which we would dutifully chant.

As luck would have it, in 'those days', our home port of Lyttelton (for reasons concealed in the mists of antiquity) had the lights on the ends of the moles reversed, so that this rule held true.

This meant that the mis-learning remained undetected until we ventured further afield. The lights on the harbour moles have since been corrected.

By this time the rhyme was too deep-rooted to eradicate, so we taught ourselves a new mnemonic, which I still use (I have not yet sailed in US waters): "Red Right Returning wRong"

My brother took them after Five days of some pretty wild (70+ knots) katabatics. We had Snow Petrel pretty securely tied of with 5 shore lines at Cape Denison, Commonweath Bay. In East Antarctica, near 67 degrees south.
