Octáogo

Español

  1. Acata con respeto las ódenes del capitán
    como si fueran las de tu padre espiritual
    hermano mayor.

  2. No acometas con armas o malas palabras
    al hermano de tu misma caleta,
    ni de ninguna del litoral.

  3. Recibe en tu nave al hermano que te visita;
    ofrécele refrigerio en tu mesa y
    el mejor coy de tu camarote.

  4. Como trates a tus hermanos serás correspondido
    y el capitán alabará tu fraternidad
    o te castigar?

  5. No tengas envidia de la nave de tu hermano,
    ni de sus velas y motores.

  6. Trae al piloto sin puerto a tu caleta
    y si no posee otra riqueza que su corazón
    embárcale en tu yate y considérale como hermano.

  7. No seas orgulloso ni violento; al serlo,
    conseguirás que tus hermanos se alejen de ti
    y quedarás solo con tu peste.

  8. El amor al Mar debe ser el culto de tus días;
    haz sacrificios a él observando estas leyes.
