Other Sailing Resources

I thought of all my other boats and all the other summers of sailing, dating way back to when I used to go out with my father in a cranky overcanvased catboat we had when I was a little girl in the early part of the century. My father, a reckless enthusiast when it came to a sailboat, found me a most satisfactory companion because I had not sense enough to be frightened.
