This seasons ultimate fails. We have met two types of sailors. Ones that say they know everything, and ones that will admit they don’t. We refuse to become one of those sailors that pretends to know everything, and never learns. It’s one of our biggest complaints with sailing-these forums where people pick apart what people have done before something goes horribly wrong.
