Yeah... keep them ole geezers off the water! They always sail so slowly! And then ya never know when one of them will hit the throttle instead of the brake when they're tryin' ta park at the marina and wipe out the fuel dock or something!

Re: Jeanne Socrates completes circumnavigation

What an achievement and she was raising money for a good cause, too! I read she started sailing in her 40s and then only started single-handing after her husband had died of cancer. She inspires me.
