Among other things he muses about organizing a crew of veterans and youngsters to race for a major championship title; learning to jibe a foiling moth; campaigning a Melges 32 or a Laser SB3; having a shot at the A Scow title with Buddy Melges in his crew; team racing; cruising to the Galapagos and South Georgia Island; and breaking the 50 knot barrier.
There were three things on his list that especially struck a chord with me...
- Take a Laser out in the surf, somewhere in the tropics, sail upwind for 20 miles in the ocean and then back downwind in 35 knots.
- Launch 10 Lasers off a ship in mid-ocean in 25 knots or more with 15-foot waves.
- Take his (as yet unborn) grandchildren sailing.
