and Yikes! one of the boats I am sailing on next Saturday hit a rock near Skomer yesterday I am absolutely sure we will be fine. The Dales Princess has been doing the run for over 30 years. Fingers crossed!!!
The Titanic's captain had sailed countless thousands of nautical miles too and look what happened to that - only joking! Standing at the helm of a boat makes you no more a competant, knowledgeable sailor as standing in a garage makes you a car.
