    Re: A Voyage in Southern Seas

    I can relate to keeping clear of the boom. Sailing back from an Ensenada
    race, my crew was my wife and a friend, an experienced woman sailor. I
    was going forward to drop the sails to go into Dana Point harbor, and
    when the main boom swung over, I instinctively ducked. But I wasn't ready
    for it to immediately swing back, and it hit me on the head, knocking me
    into the cockpit. Needless to say, I was out of action, but Ellen got us
    into the harbor, and I was soon off to the local hospital to have umpteen
    stitches in my scalp.
    
    So, this one had a happy ending. Had I not ducked the first swing, I
    would have been knocked overboard, unconscious, and I shudder at that
    thought.
