Over reliance on GPS and map plotters

Many sailors more and more rely on modern yachting gadget. But, blind believe in navigation generation may additionally regularly become with you on a reef.

Small rocks and reefs are simplest visible on the plotter whilst looking up near, even as on a paper map they may be visible right away. So while the captain doesn't zoom in, he won't even see the rock in any respect. This even takes place to greater seasoned sailors.
