    Indeed, Norman. Some are born to it...as others are born, are called, to other endeavours...

    Absolutely...got really comfortable furniture here. Cannot deny that I wish all those who go to sea - for whatever reason - return to shore safely.

    But in other news Lee Shores, Lazy Jacks and Lunches is back but with a very sad story.

    Please accept my apologies, Norman: I don't know if I was born with a bulls**t detector or if I acquired it over time, or maybe with experience...but I am stuck with it now and feel obliged to share.

    Not only was he a fighter pilot but judging by his videos he seems to have remembered the meteorology bits and is able to download and interpret forecasts on the go.

    Donít you go worrying yourself unnecessarily...

    Yes he was. I have had a brief conversation with him, as one retired pilot to another. Lots of pilots turn to sailing when time permits. As for the weather, donít worry. Itís my experience you ď natural born sailorsĒ are babes in the woods when it comes to the weather and interpretation of synoptic charts etc...
