YEA Rimas! He is in and under the Golden Gate at about 8:30PM. A boat went out to meet him. Possibly tow him to Sausalito. On a San Juan 24!

Congratulations to him. I hope he learned something from this trip and didn't just confirm to himself that his approach to ocean sailing is "good to go".

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

They say the boat will take more punishment than the crew. I'm not sure that applies to Rimas and his San Juan 24....

Love him or hate him for what he's doing, it's hard not to respect him for it.

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.

Nice to hear a friend came out to bring the tired fellow in. Just guessing he may be a little beat.
