By the time you read this, we will be underway — moving our Pearson 303 down to Deltaville, Virginia.  After six wonderful years with Shearwater, it’s time for someone else to enjoy her; so once we get her moved, she’s going on the market. Continue Reading →

A hot, sweltering, crispy-critter day ashore.  What could be better than taking a nice boat ride and having the breeze cool you down?  Take in the sun and have something icy cold to drink… and pretty soon you’ll find yourself in that lazy, drowsy state where time just sort of drifts along and conversations slow to a crawl.

During my windsurfing days -- Buxton, North Carolina (July 1987)Olympus Stylus + 35/2.8

During my windsurfing days — Buxton, North Carolina (July 1987)
Olympus Stylus + 35/2.8

Yep, that’s me… in the yellow trunks, hauling up my pink and white sail, nearly getting wiped out by another windsurfer.  I would drive down to the Outer Banks of North Carolina every weekend from where I lived in Richmond, Virginia, and I would slum it the entire time just to spend 10-12 hours per day out on the water.  Sailing was my outlet from my troubles back then — a failing marriage, a failing job, no money, the rest of my family had moved out to the west coast, etc. — and spending time on the board in the sun and waves helped to clear my head and get me energized for the upcoming week.  This is the only photo I have of myself during that period, and I treasure it for that reason.
