  1. I’ve been following you on the web and on my globe. It has been quite thrilling .
    I read about your voyage in the January “Waterlines” article and have followed you everyday since .Your description of the knockdown in the pacific was one deserving of a movie . I felt adrenalin as if I were there.
    Although I am but a novice ,I have a passion for sailing the ocean and I relate to your sense of adventure.
