Thanksgiving tradition. Family stroll at Tod's Point (aka Greenwich) complete with family selfie. Strange to see so many boats still in OG harbor and at the dock, including the OGYC launch. thanksgiving familywalk familyselfie todspoint greenwichpoint greenwich greenwichct

Two of my favorite Swans, the 48 "Catch 22" (formerly Windancer), and the 60 "Fenix," just happen to be on the market at the same time in Newport (pm me if you know someone who might like one of these). I've enjoyed racing on both of these boats at BVI Spring Regatta @bvisr and both are quick and comfortable. Both sport carbon rigs, deep keels, and sumptuous accommodations ideal for racing and cruising the Caribbean circuit. swanyachts nautorswan swan48 swan60 swansailing sailing sailboat yachtracing yacht yachting swanyacht

Back in the middle 80s when I was an editor at Yacht Racing & Cruising Magazine (aka @sailingworldmag) I loved the Dehler Yachts brand -- the DB2 (a sporty 3/4 tonner) and the Dehler 38 (back then I called it the "Swiss Army Knife of Sailboats"). I lost touch with the brand until recently when I had a chance to check out the Dehler 46 at @mcmyacht. What an eye opener. This is a boat I could happily race to Bermuda and comfortably cruise the Caribbean & BVI! dehler46 dehler sailboat sailing sailinglife yachtracing boat yachting sailingworld cruisingworld

Going through sneakers like tissue paper! The paddle courts at BHC were resurfaced this year, and I get about 6-7 matches out of a pair. Solution? Buy cheap/on sale sneaks and lots of them. sneakers sneaks platformtennis paddletennis bhc @pt

Sometime in the next 24-36 hours, Bitter End Yacht Club's beloved Watersports Director and friend, Jerome Rand ( @jerhobie) will join the ranks of "Sons of Neptune" (aka going from Pollywog to Shellback) when he crosses the Equator on his epic non-stop solo circumnavigation aboard The Mighty Sparrow. Track his progress at "Sailing into Oblivion" on Facebook. And join me in saluting his adventure. sailing roundtheworld shellback sonofneptune adventure equator sailboat westsail32

Yesterday, doing one of things I love doing most--being in, on, or around boats. Sail, power, big, small, it doesn't matter. This Hanse 575 was among many nice brokerage boats at the @mcmyacht open house/boat show yesterday.

For 30 years, this was my daily morning "pre Pro Am Regatta" power walk. Were it not for horrible Hurricane Irma, I'd have been doing it again today, and getting ready for our Wreck of the Rhone 150th Anniversary Commemoration (our scheduled Pro Am Layday activity this year). Just like with the Rhone, Mother Nature had other plans, and the wonderful people of the BVI have far more important things to worry about today. proamregatta bvi britishvirginislands virgingorda bitterendyachtclub beyc thegoodoldays flashback

After years of playing with a Viking Paddle, this is my weapon of choice for the 2017-2018 platform tennis season. A Master Athletics M1 Tour Edition. I've played with it a few times now and love the power and control in such a light racquet. Thanks @mgrangeiro for recommending it. paddletennis platformtennis @bhcpt wintersport

A bucket of steamers, Yuengling Lager, and two of the best Lump Crabcakes ever -- last evening at Cantler's Riverside Inn. When in Annapolis it's a must stop. Passed on the traditional "hammer & pick" whole crab experience in favor of easier crab cakes. annapolis cantlersriversideinn cantlers boatshow crab crabcakes steamers

Saddened to hear of the passing of George Cuthbertson. The first C in C&C Yachts. Growing up, I raced on a lot of C&Cs, including the venerable C&C 40. His boats were a major part of my early sailing life. sailing sailboat c&yahts yachting c& sailracing

I grew up sailing on lot of ketches and yawls. And dreamt of flying acres of canvas while cruising the oceans of the world. But I don't think I've seen a production ketch or yawl in years. Until two weeks ago at the @thenewportboatshow The Amel 55 rekindled that offshore sailing desire. A double-head rig with a mizzen -- imagine the "canvas" you could unfurl, and the distant anchorages you could visit?
