Another "Cause" (tongue in cheek)

Ahhh...refreshing. That's why I sail: to get away from everything on my own little, private island.

Works for me!

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.

I was impressed by his predicted travel time: 28,000 nm in just 90 days. That averages out to 311 nm/day.

He must be a wicked good sailor!!!

When your mind is not distracted by all the trivial things happening you can focus on performance.

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.
