Rated 1.00/5 based on 1 reviews
While blue water sailing through Hurricane Bob, the sailing seemed spectacular for the first several days and nights. Thick moonlight, the viscous night light that marks the passage of twilight, gives the great blue sea swells their animation under a gentle wind.

Review by: memobug on Oct. 24, 2014 :
I must be missing something. Looking at the introduction here, I expected a short story on blue water sailing through a hurricane. What I got was a six page e-pamphlet containing half a dozen bullet points on celestial navigation with a short explanation of how hurricanes originate and a hotlink to a hurricane website.

This may be useful for someone, but not me. It has nothing to do with the Inspiration category it appears under.
