Thank you for joining our mailing list. We’ll reach out when we have something dope to share.
In the meantime, here are a few nautical words and phrases that are worth knowing:
Anchors Aweigh – The phrase “anchors aweigh” is a report that the anchors are clear of the sea bottom and, therefore, the ship is officially under way. 1
If you can’t tie knots, tie lots – said to newbie sailors when they botch a knot tying job. 2
Knots & Nautical Miles – A nautical mile measures distance and a knot measures speed. 3
- It is slightly more than a statute (land measured) mile (1 nautical mile = 1.1508 statute miles ).
- A knot is one nautical mile per hour (1 knot = 1.15 miles per hour ).
- Teddy, our favorite sea captain, says it to all of us
