b1b1b1 The new Uber boats
Thinking outside the box - some really exciting creations find their way into the domain of small cruisers and raid event boats. To think there's an alternative to the 4ksb is abhorrent! Be abhorred

a1a1a1 Classe Quindici (15.9')
This is about a new racing class for sailboats. Forming a simpler class that will interest more people in sailing and racing, even building their own boat to suit their own needs.

b1b1b1 Micro Multihulls
Small boats are challenging for weeking cruising - because of low speed it's not easy to cover miles. An alternative - a micro multihull to expand your range.

This is the special boat - a major rebuild (with just a mild update to the interior) of a Lock Crowther designed Twiggy-class trimaran. She's 32 feet long and 30 feet wide.

b1b1b1 Florida Keys
The Florida Keys are a great cruising ground - know the rules - get the local knowledge - meet the local sailors - eat the local cuisine - and have fun. From my stint in the Keys - here's a thumbnail of one of the spots where I was able to spend some time.

In family news, Colette Henry, Montargis, France, celebrates her birthday June 23 (b. 2001 at Brooklyn NY). She's in a film about the local canal. Brian & Fabienne are justifiably proud.

a1a1a1 Jester Challenge 2010
Iron men, the Jester Challenge sailors, 30' boats, no fees, no rules, just sailing across the Atlantic from Plymouth, UK to Newport, R.I. An hour and a half separated the top two finishers Zarestsky, left, Peterson 25 and McDougal, right, Wharram 21 after 33 days of racing.

b1b1b1 The Bay...
Very happy to have made it sailing on the Chesapeake Bay this year.

Truly a 'bucket list' item. Keeping the boat near the West River - a nice piece of the Bay indeed. Great area for gunk-holing and the easy lifestyle.

a1a1a1 Yet another perfect boat...
Will I ever tire of changing boats like they were old socks? I don't think so.  I recently found a very nice example of the S2 built 6.9 series boats. The pro's and con's are interesting...

A 25 year old story, but it makes me smile when I remember those sweet days...
