This is the sailing page. Here upon I put links to my various
sailng endeavors and general sailing info for other die hard sailing
types who'd rather beat to weather than motor.
My First Boat: The
schooner Abigail who is
back in the Thames river in New London CT where she was built. Funny
things come full circle.
My New Boat:
The Albin Vega 27
These pics are what the Albin Vega is supposed to look like. "Gala" (my name for her - she had none)
is a dark blue (soon to be new awl gripped black) 1977 Albin Vega 27 designed and built in Sweden.
Gala has a dual meaning in Swedish: It's the crow of a rooster and, of course, a big party!
Getting her was a real bitch but I just sent in the registration papers
so with luck she'll be officially mine soon.
Hence I post these new pictures:
My First Long Distance Race:
of the 2003 Around Long Island Race
which we aboard Indecent Proposal, an S2 10 meter, won for our class.
One of the top five greatest experiences of my life and the inspiration
for many of my recent paintings.
My First Cruise as Captain:
The tale of cruising
the West coast of Florida aboard a 29' Nouveau sloop with my friend Mike and the pictures thereof.
Hudson Sailing links:
- I worked here for a year after a season working at
Marine. I can't say enough good stuff about these guys.
Bob Wheeler and George
Samalot are the kings of Hudson river racing and sailing.
Chelsea Yacht Club
- Nicest yachties I've met. Really cool people, great club.
Boating On The Hudson
Some Sailing e-Zines: -
I'll try to put the most useful ones here. Until then use Google.
Good Cruising Tales: -
For those who dream of sailing away...
Odyssey - e-book by Pete Lutus. Amazing story. Must. Read.
Bringing Lyra Home
Buying Boats: - There
are a million of these but here are the ones I tend to use.
