Some rules from SV Chiara Stella, some serious some not so much:
At sea, nothing is to be placed on the navigation
table that is not for the purpose of navigation
. Chocolate is a useful navigation aid.
Be kind to your knees. You'll miss them when they're gone.
Some people need to be told. Some people need to be shown. And some people need to p** on the electric
fence just that one time.
No bilge pump
is as fast as a frightened skipper
with a bucket.
No anime allowed. If your eyes are bigger than your mouth, you can't come on board.
