Favorite Tabor Boy moment
From the "crow's nest" at the top of the mast, looking out at the ocean and being able to see the curve in the earth's horizon. I realized I knew how to sail, the oceans connected the land, and I could go anywhere I wanted by sailing there on the ocean. Further, we won the Shields 30 class race Summer 1972.
