Re: MOB: Do You Practice?

As I usually sail alone not yet. However, I was ready an interesting excerpt in the classic L. Francis Herreshoffs The Compleat Cruiser: The Art, Practice, and Enjoyment of Boating, about how his character made a game out of MOB practice for his daughter and a friend. For pearls of wisdom it is worth a read.

Ok, be careful and make sure everyone knows your life insurance is expired....
