An anonymous commenter suggested here a few days ago that I ought to seek some sponsorship for my quest for 100 Laser sailing days in 2008. I was a bit skeptical at first about this idea. One thing I like about writing this blog is that I can say exactly what I like. If I had sponsors would I feel inhibited in any way to freely express my opinions?
Having giving the matter some thought I decided to give it a shot. I'm confident that a few measly thousand dollars will not unduly influence my writing. So here is the account of my 67th sail last Tuesday kindly sponsored by Lenscrafters and Rayban.
Let's see. I could tell you about the winds, or the moves I practiced, or how I worked on my boatspeed, or the scenery... No, I think I really must tell you about how wonderfully clear and bright the light was, how distant objects appeared so close and sharp. Perhaps it was the atmospheric conditions; perhaps it was the way that the low angle of the sun lit up the houses miles away at the northern end of the Sakonnet...
Or perhaps it was my superb pair of sunglasses whose makers names I could not possibly mention as it might compromise my journalistic integrity.
