Attention! Today you will not read of tactics, strategies, spreader lengths and shroud tension. You will read about something much more important and vital for you to win a championship, a race, or just to touch the ground safely. So concentrate and take notes!

There are very few who, in the age of the Internet, admit to being superstitious. They will only admit that they follow some habit or routine. But superstition has been part of our sport since man became a sailor. He instantly realized that the sea can be a hostile place, especially when it was still believed that the earth had an edge that could be sailed off. The sea imposes respect and evokes fears, so there are many superstitions, rituals and taboos. The intelligent modern sailor, not leaving anything to chance, should still observe these.
