People often ask me, “is it not dangerous out there?” My standard respond to that is, statistically seen, it is far more dangerous to drive a car across the country than crossing the ocean in a sailboat. That being said, I know how statistics are generated and calculated. It does not do me any good if 1000 people make it safely across the ocean, but I am the one the ends up drowning in a storm. Therefore always prepare for the worst. If you hope for the best and plan for the worst, you are safe. It’s just like with anything in life the better you prepare ahead a time, the easier you will have it if you get in a stressful situation.
