Excerpt
Excerpt: Landfall and departure mark the rhythmical swing of a seaman?s life and of a ship?s career. From land to land is the most concise definition of a ship?s earthly fate. A ?Departure? is not what a vain people of landsmen may think. The term ?Landfall? is more easily understood; you fall in with the land, and it is a matter of a quick eye and of a clear atmosphere.
