The Glass Half Full



26 45.60N:77 19.47W

Chance of a Thunderstorm. Partly Cloudy. High: 82° F. Wind ESE 12-15 mph.



Most sailors would think I’m talking about the barometer when measuring the glass – or perhaps a measure of rum, but in fact, I am talking about one’s perspective on life, and getting stuck waiting for George, the mystery man at Green Turtle Cay. I could see it as a problem, but in fact, it has been one of the best things that could have… Continue

30 knot winds, smoke and a rescue - the Can Drac Maiden Voyage



If you read our previous blog post about our plans for Can Drac's Maiden Voyage you'll know that we were planning a slow and uneventful cruise down the Delaware river and up the coast of Jersey over three long days with a fantastic weather forecast.



Well, that was not to be.



After averting a fire in the middle of a champagne toast and participating in a sea rescue in the middle of 30 knot gusts, Can Drac in its new home on… Continue

Island Time



26 45.60N:77 19.47W

Scattered clouds, chance of thunderstorms. High: 82° F. Wind South 11 mph.



The sweat slips slowly down the small of my back. My hair is damp and stuck to my head. Off in the distance, thunder rumbles, but here on Black Sound at Green Turtle Cay, not a whisper of wind ruffles the water. I’ve got my computer set up in the cockpit so I can work trying to catch whatever wisps of wind come my way. I’m on the… Continue

On the matter of Presidential Candidates.....

Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John McCain were flying to a debate.



Barack looked at Hillary, Chuckled and said, 'You know I could throw a $1,000 bill out of the window right now and make somebody very happy.'



Hillary shrugged her shoulders and replied, 'I could throw ten $100 bills out of the window and make ten people very happy.'



John added, 'That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills out of the window and make a… Continue

*Sailing vs. Racing vs. Cruising*

I was in. A whole new world had opened up and welcomed me in. I was sailing. Sailing, sailing, sailing. Up until that point I was just enjoying the pure wind upon my face, I was sailing. I quickly found out that it wasn't just about sailing though. There were a few different aspects to sailing. In the Manhattan Yacht Club I found that there were 2 basic types of boaters. Racers or Cruisers.



I wasn't sure what I was yet. I just started. I just knew I had to be out on the water and at… Continue
