I was sent the picture below, anonymously, with the comment
Please see attached proof that you can also sail a solo whilst asleep!
Coincidentally, when this picture was sent to me, I was on holiday in Greece and someone took my picture. I also look as though I am sleeping !
The sailing wasn’t always as good as it appears in the above picture. Sometimes there was so little wind that I was forced to relax by the pool and drink beer.
I am surprised by the allegation that I was asleep whilst sailing – I will be contacting my solicitor’s.However, if I was asleep, then it merely demonstrates what a brilliant, naturally gifted, sailor I am, because the picture shows a boat that is being skillfully sailed at great speed!
I agree with Matt. I think it is very similar to how, in Star Wars, when Obi-Wan Kenobi is teaching Luke Skywalker to use the light sabre, blindfolded.You just need to "feel the force" or "feel the wind" in this case.
