A basic rule you'll encounter in any sailing camp is to avoid birdwatching. Well, at least during sailing times. Be sure that when you are sailing on a beautiful day that you avoid sailing toward birds that are not flying. In other words, don't sail toward birds that are standing still. This may seem like a strange tip...until you think about the logistics. As you're sailing along, you see a flock of beautiful birds all in one place. Want to sail closer for a photo op? Forget it. Why? Ask yourself: What are the birds standing on? It'll either be rocks or land -- and neither of those are ideal places to sail your boat!
