I assembled this a few years ago because even I forget some of the boats and events I sailed. Still fond memories; and still making more.
This is in response to those who asked:”Who are you?” It is a least a dimension.Boats have always been a part of my life. Naturally interwoven with the story of Newport.
Toronto is a wonderful city full of life. The traffic however made New York City seem modest. The Food and Art are wonderful. Like everything, one has to make choices. I felt that the Eskimo art was the thing I was least likely to find in the lower 48.
July 1984 I was invited to go to the Beaufort Sea, the western arctic by boat, a 65 foot motorsailer belonging to John Bockstoce,” Mr. Arctic.” A completely new adventure for me, non racing. Such an interesting group, I read everything I could before I joined the boat.
