Happy Holidays to All


Here is my annual holiday poem for the great folks here. I hope everyone finds the spirit of the season within them and shares it with others. It has been a great year on the boat and a great year with friends. My best to all. And hope all is well.

ps - my night before christmas poem will be coming

(sung to the tune of "Feed the World")

It''s Christmastime, and all I want is another boat.
A cutter or sloop, but not a Hunter or a Beneteau.
In this world of plenty, I can dream of a Hallberg-Rassy.
Get a new wrap for your wheel it''s Christmastime!

But say a prayer, pray for the dealerships,
At Christmastime it''s hard when the docks are iced.

But there''s a sea outside your window, and it''s a sea of turquoise green,
With tons of boats out sailing there, heeling to extreme,
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging, banging booms
Well, tonight thank God that you can sail there tooooooo.

And there won''t be snow in the Keys this Christmas.
But the greatest gift they''ll get this year is race week.
(oohh) Where just about anything goes
The bands and booze do flow.
Do they know it''s Christmastime at all?

Sail the world,
Don''t you know its Christmastime

Sail the world,
Big discounts in the off season

Sail the world,
Reef early and reef often…

Sail the world…..
