To have to submit to the way that the water works, the fact that the weather can change, the fact that you might encounter many things unforeseen… Well, it’s often said that sailing is a state of blissful awareness punctuated by sheer terror. That has its downsides, but at least it’s very real. You know what the problems are and you can find within yourself the solutions to overcome them.

Probably it’s no surprise that I really enjoyed the mini-doc Shaped on All Six Sides.



"Mate … tastes like green tea if you added bitterness and removed joy. Calling it an acquired taste is generous, and yet it’s as popular in Uruguay and Argentina as steak."


You guys see the sunset last night?
