Sailing relieves writer's block

Sailing always takes my mind off the things that worry me.

My friend Philip Kersten caught me buzzing along in Massachusetts Bay a couple of days ago aboard my Bristol 32 sloop Mistral and sent along this photo. You can see Boston in the background.

Philip was aboard his beloved Alden 44 Tioga, which we've sailed back and forth between Boston and Bermuda. Always great to run into a friend at sea.
