As I noted on the introduction to my main site, www.inthepresentsea.com, I have kept a journal under this title for many years. I have found it useful in providing material for other writing and for memory. But making a diary public changes everything. Certainly in the past I have made entries that I would not want to publish. It will at least enable those who are interested to keep track of where I am.

Saint Michaels: another oldest
Now that you know the oldest sailor, 118 year old me, meet ELF, who is even older and the oldest active racing boat in the U.S.
The ‘active’ claim is valid. I watched them take her out and race her last Sunday.
I believe you can read her impressive dimensions in this plaque.
Note that despite all that sail area she is steered with a tiller.
