I realise you have done the ARC several times and I am sure that you are not one of the people I am talking about. OR perhaps you are.
If you sail by the lee, eventually you will gybe.
Whilst awaitinf orders we where alongside the wharf in West Cowes when a super yacht circled round and came alongside,white ensign and all.The owner was very affable as one expects from that class of person but the crew who scuttled away down the focsle showed very few social skills........
I find that explaining that we are definitely not English (or sceptics) leads to affability and welcome.
