I agree wholeheartedly.
Here’s a perfect example of why you don’t always want to be out on the rail (or even further). Two of us on the rail, because it was a comfortable place to be. Note the windward ama is in the water. Not a good thing.
We would have done better had we kept our butts on the hull and legs inside the cockpit (or at least one of us!). There’s a time to be out, there’s a time to be in. There’s a time to be aft and a time to be forward. It all makes a difference.
