"Revel closed with a whimper during the Labor Day holiday weekend, its final gasps coming from the bar, where staff sold opened bottles of liquor to the last customers for $5."

Took us three tries, but we finally got the spinnaker rigged up for the final run back to the mooring field.

"I joined their 82-foot ketch Meta IV—the name is not a pun: Metas I to III existed—on a five-night itinerary through the southern half of the island chain, covering about 150 nautical miles and reaching some 30 miles from the mainland of Burma at our most westerly point. It was a dreamy voyage that took us beyond internet connectivity, from green coastal waters to the kind of blue inked in by 100-foot depths, past piratical-looking fishing boats and islands with the outlines of rusty blades. Scampering macaques foraged for crabs on the islands’ rocky shores, white-bellied sea eagles wheeled."
