Lessons learnedWindborne in the Puget Sound has a great series on lessons learned from potentially dangerous sailing situations. I love it when people take the time to do something constructive and productive within whatever subculture I'm involved with at the time.
As he describes it:
Years ago when I was a kid, I used to read Flying magazine. I particularly enjoyed a long-running series of articles entitled "I Learned About Flying From That." Each article was written by a pilot, who humbly admitted to having made a mistake, and then having lived, told about it in the hopes that others would not have to make the same mistake. I thought then that it was a good format, and I still think that now. This series of postings is my attempt to recreate that article series with a new subject and new technology.
(If you would like to help others to learn from your mistakes, please send your article to: WindborneInPugetSound@gmail.com)
At his suggestion, I wrote a guest post about my lessons learned about entering fog from my first time single handing. At some point in the future I'll write another.
