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

Next delivery..

I'm busy preparing to depart Montreal for Santiago, Chile, where I will do the tourist thing on a KTM 650 moto for 6 weeks before delivering a brand new "Chris White" designed 60" cat to San Diego, California.

Tybee Time

I had started a blogging site shortly after we purchased our boat. We keep a record of all our up grades that we do in order to prep her for extended cruising. Every once in a while we do manage to escape away from the dock and have a little fun on her. So if you would like to read about it the site is www.tybeetime.blogspot.com . Take a look around and tell me what you think.

*Entry Point into Sailing*

From afar, I always thought that sailing was so elegant, peaceful and that you had to be rich to be able to enter into it. This was of course from afar before I had become a sailor myself in 2000. Any reference to sailing in the media shows beautiful, happy people on a large sailing yacht sipping wine and enjoying the wind upon the sails. I am not sure that the media (or the media that I had paid attention to) had really shown me any other side to sailing.



As a child growing up near… Continue

A MOVIE DOCUMENTARY WE CAN'T MISS!!

'Deep Water' is the stunning true story of the first solo, non-stop, round-the-world boat race, and the psychological toll it took on its competitors. Sponsored by the Sunday Times of London, the much-ballyhooed event attracted a field of nine, including amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst, who set out to circumnavigate the globe in late 1968. Battling treacherous seas and his own demons,…
