If you do not clearly set your destination, your ship will ultimately lose its navigation. This is a serious matter. If you are undecided about the destination, anything distracts you. Failure is probably a guaranteed outcome. Imagine a pilot taking off a plane, but he or she is clueless about the landing airport. There is literally no destination. What are the chances of something bad happening? It is worth pointing out that a trained sailor does not mean a focused sailor. What is the destination? Why are you going there?
