It was a dark and stormy night and the wind was blowing a force 5 gale. Not a night at sea for a layman. Your 3 a.m. shift rings six bells as you climb out of your berth only to hear the wind and feel your vessel being tossed around like a toy. Life of a sailboat captain is not always wine and roses. While searching through your seabag, you discover your Safe Passage Shirt, a shirt with a long seafaring pedigree. Made with a plush quick-dry Coolmax Cotton that feels warm against the skin and super soft to the touch. Four button front with stand up collar and a nice handy pocket for your reading glasses for when there is a need to make a lat-long dead reckoning check for positioning. No GPS on this vessel, strictly old school here. You don your foulies and deck boots, a watch cap to keep the noggin warm and step through the companion way to the ocean in all its fury. You exchange looks with the man at the helm and take over at the wheel. You steam west across the gulfstream, as your shift partner descends into the warmth of the cabin, he turns and says “Safe passage, mate” and retires to his bunk. The Safe Passage shirt loves adventure and so do you. Epilogue: boats in harbors are safe, but that’s not what boats were built for.
