Without A Mast

When you go out sailing anything can go wrong... unfortunately this time for Melanie and Will it was the mast! Read their story here Without A Mast - rumbum.com

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.

Melanie's an excellent writer and sailor. The blogs of her new boat show that no matter the size, it can happen to you.
