100 Days at Sea

This is the story of my attempt to sail my Laser 100 days in 2008. Hey, I know it's not a big deal but I've never Lasered that much in any previous year and I want to see if I can.

Every day I sail the Laser this year I will write a post (or two) about it and add a link to that post here. I will post an image in the sidebar to celebrate the current number of days sailed. There is a permanent record of most of these images at Numbers.

Will I make 100 days? Sure. Do you doubt me?

Just seeing this. Great inspiration! It is my goal but will I ever achieve it with the company still going strong...Having zero, nada,null niente days out there until today. This year.

Every time I read your blog, I see your days at sea counter. The envious and jealous side of me starts arguing with my rational side and a few bullet points always emerge,
1) Way to go Tillerman, tis a mighty fine goal you've got there.
2) Man I wish I could afford to buy my own laser.
3) 'wistfully' How much longer until the ice on the lake melts.
4) yeah, um, there isn't a number four
5) One hundred is such a nice round number.
6) I should come up with my own goal for day sailed or days on the water.
7) Hope Tillerman gets 100 days.
8) I like sailing.

Yeah, I know, my internal dialogue is a little crazy after a long day at work.

Good luck Tillerman

ps Is it still blogging if it isn't on your own blog?
