    How about sailing in  fog in a congested channel. I still remember two occasions which happened 20 or more years ago. Could not see the bow in a 34 ft  Sabre……ugh!

    Subject: [NavList] CN and my PhD thesis

     

    PhD candidates in the Netherlands, in addition to dissertation, must prepare a number of concise propositions/statements (in dutch Stellingen ) in a form of attachment.Traditionally part of it does not need to be directly related to the main content of dissertation. The idea behind is that a PhD candidate is able to defend these statements in public if he will be asked for (in practice it never happens).

    Here is the 7-th stelling from my PhD thesis (2009):

    7.  Two things are only whispered when one talks seriously about sailing: celestial navigation and the harshest waters of Cape Horn.

    kind regards,

    Igor
