The movement of cruisers to their hurricane season homes and the departure of the Volvo Ocean Race on their 7th leg has me thinking of my own past departures. The process of getting off the dock is stressful. The to-do lists are endless. The chaos of last minute boat projects has the boat torn apart and usually there is a massive pile of food and supplies waiting to be stowed.
