The Fastnet

Beautiful article by Michael Hutchinson in today's NYT on sailing the Fastnet!

The title is "My Life on the Ocean Wave." I can't post it because of copyright. Obviously you have unlimited access if you subscribe to the NYT. If you are not a subscriber, I believe you get 10 articles free every month. This one is worth it to use up 10% of your allotment!

One of the most riveting reads I have encountered of Fastnet, was within Ted Turner's autobiography "I am Ted".
If none of the readers know, Ted Turner sailed (and won) in the infamous 1979 Fastnet race on his Sparkman & Stephens "Tenacious".

Re: The Fastnet

I don't know how many times I've read Fastnet "Force 10" now. Another good read.

That is a horse head in the box. Not an alien!
