Sailboat gets up-close and personal with a leeward mark Ingrid Abery

Dear Dr. Crash,
I think my crew is finally starting to believe me about the depth-perception issues I’m experiencing of late. At a recent regatta I could swear one leeward mark was four boat lengths away, but the guys are telling me now that when I called for the spinnaker takedown, the darn thing was practically on the bow. Do you think we need to work on our timing, or is it me?

—Mr. Magoo
