"Emerald, I had the great pleasure of sailing many miles offshore and around the buoys with your dad in the 1980's. He is a great guy, and I always admired his spirit and steadfastness onboard (to say nothing of his strength and intellect.)…"

There were many: the 1970 America's Cup off Newport; reaching down LI Sound in a late November, near gale, taffrail log spinning wildly, the first day of our departure for Charleston, SC; powering through the East River at night, steak dinner; anchoring off uninhabited, Bahamian Is.; cold water pouring down the aft hatch, waterspouts off Cape Hatteras; jumping off the topsail yard in Nassau; sailing through Nav-Opts, at night off Jacksonville; Cap on the corner of the bridge, leaning into the corner, calmly, but clearly giving orders; Jay Parkers' steady way; great captain; great crew, great friends.
