Carpe Diem (August 2015 Logbook)

Don’t panic. Yes, this is the August issue, which means the boating season is winding down for some of our readers in North America. Heck, we’re already working on our fall issues of Power & Motoryacht. One symptom of working two months out is you are often slightly confused about exactly what time of year it is at any given moment.

Threading the Needle

Key West Race Week in January 2000 was one of the largest keelboat sailing regattas in the world at the time. There were more than 300 racing sailboats on the island for the event. Premier Racing from Marblehead, Massachusetts, was the managing company. Peter Craig, founder and owner of Premier Racing, was also the event director and headed up the race committee for Division 1 of 3 divisions. Sadly, I have just learned that, after 21 years, Premier Racing is stepping aside from the Key West regatta in 2016.

I’m Ready to Talk Now

Okay, I’m going to come clean. While cruising, I’m not usually an enthusiastic social animal, skipping down the dock in my flip-flops like the pied piper and asking anyone within sight a bunch of questions. “Where are you from?” “Where are you going?” “How long have you had your boat?” Sure, I’ll help you with your lines when you pull into the dock, and will certainly offer a good morning. Just don’t expect me to drop by your cockpit with homemade muffins for a morning chat.
