Red, Wrong, Regretting

While I’m back in L.A., nursing a recuperating Wrigley, my husband Tom is holding down the fort at Fish Hooks. Here’s a guest post from him, with a timely warning for mariners.

The phrase “red, right, returning” has long been as basic to mariners as the other “three Rs” are to school children. The reminder to keep the red navigational marker off the boat’s right side when ‘returning’ from open water is the rule of thumb that ensures safe passage to harbours around the world.

But, now, as boaters head to Green Turtle Cay for this weekend’s Island Roots Heritage Festival, one skipper’s misfortune can be a timely lesson to others.
