Jody Hill - Flicka Skipper

Jody Hill

Some of you may know or heard of Jody Hill, a popular and experienced yacht skipper, most recently aboard the 1934 classic Flicka. Jody was involved in a serious accident in the British Virgin Islands in May 2006. The car he was travelling in rolled down an embankment leaving him with severe spinal injuries. He has been left paralysed from the waist down.

Jody has been in hospital just about ever since. At this stage there is a very little hope of recovery.

Jody's website has been revamped and relaunched on www.jodypositive.com. It feature's his diary, gallery, online donations, news of events such as the recent one held by the Maltese Falcon in Falmouth Harbour, Antigua.

Thanks for checking out this message.

Charlotte—Thanks for the info... I will keep Jody in my prayers and thoughts.

CD—I know what you mean... I've had to deal with two serious car accidents... one left me seriously injured, the other was a drunk driver who killed my identical twin. Planning to head off later this year..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Life is too short to drink diet coke, lite beer, or dance with ugly women

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

My thoughts exactly, especially after being hit by a car while crossing an intersection. I still remember my thoughts as I went over the hood of the car - "s--t, is this it?"

Many Thanks for your kind messages of support. He was sadly missed in this years Antigua Classics Yacht Regatta by all the locals and he felt quite down that he wasn't here in Antigua doing what he loves most - sailing!!! His tragic accident occurred just 3 weeks after he competed in last year's regatta.

Life is not a rehearsal - so enjoy every moment! As Jody said to me last week - GO SAIL!!!

Thanks Charlotte
