Down to the Sea

"Down to the sea in ships" is a phrase used in the Bible to describe sailing. It perfectly fits a recent moment in one sailor's life. Shepperd Snaith was sailing his father's yawl Figaro III across the Atlantic when a huge wave broke over his quarter. He survived to tell the tale but only after a literal descent to the level of the sea itself.
