I’ve been deluged on a daily basis with requests to return yet again to the romantic days of
sail for the next phrase, and I’m happy to oblige, if only to stop her from pestering me.
We’ve looked at the risks involved in sailing close to a lee shore in a previous post. Another area of nautical danger of was the presence of rocks and sandbanks lurking just out of sight below the waterline.
Any type of hazardous situation like that could lead to a captain, either through bad luck or bad judgement, finding himself in the embarrassing position of his ship having been left…
High and Dry!
