This story begins with a gent deciding to buy a sailboat and sail to Southampton without charts or apparently, a compass.
We have sailed in the Medway river many times, and always made the overnight stop in Queenboro for pints and weather.
A question for this silly person, "Wouldn't you have started to ask yourself why that Safeway sign at Sheerness kept showing up by those same docks, over and over again?"
Thanks to "Bruce", currently in the sandbox, for that link.
"He was very short on expertise, even shorter on safety equipment..."
And shortest in the Clue Department. As in, none.
Sailing to Southampton is not an easy journey; It can turn really ugly in hours.
That newbie got off easy.
