More Tall Ship thoughts

I passed the climbing test, so I ought to be able to ascend into the lower rigging soon. I could have tried for the higher rigging test, but I'm not overly fond of heights. I want to take things in stages.

Fun fact: when climbing rigging, always stick to the windward side of the ship so that the wind presses you against the mast.

Another fun fact: if your ship catches fire near shore, you should try and fight off the firemen, because the amount of water dumped on your ship by their fire hoses will sink it in under 2 minutes.

That's all the fun facts I have: the other facts involve knots and belaying pins, and they're not that interesting to those who don't have to use them.

That's all for now.
