Dear John Rousmaniere,
Are the traditionalists still hanging on to the ol’ pig sticks? I thought that with wind flys, antennas, and everything else, that the starboard spreader was now the place of honor these days. The big no-no in our club is flying the burgee off the port spreader. I want to thank you again for the lecture you did in conjunction with North Sails a couple of years ago in San Francisco. It was very informative and my wife and I enjoyed it very much. Recently, we also saw your videos of the Annapolis Book of Seamanship for the first time. My, how the yachting attire styles have changed over the past 20 (25?) years.
