Julian* is a man's man with an island of his own,
a private empire nine miles from shore.

He leads fishing tours. His advice?

"Follow the tides. Otherwise you're
just wasting time getting tired."

Someone mentions someone

known to be an expert sailor.

Julian scoffs:                           

"All you need to sail is wind."

That and skill, 
his friend suggests. 

"Skill?" Julian says....           

"That just comes when   
you start doing it."

*This is not Julian.
It is a stranger near Yoli's,
a boat-up ex-pat hangout
  off Placencia, Belize.
