I wish you all, and Alex in particular, a very happy New Year and many thereafter...
In a winning position in my last boat.
But this must be a farewell.
I'm 69 now, just been hospitalized with more coming this month. I'm tired to the bone and have to end my regular involvement with this site, which has given me so much fun to do. I had some plans for future articles, but alas..
On top of that I wish to point out that so many questions are the result of a lazy attitude; almost anything can be found on the net in a jiffy but no, I must do it for you.
So I wish you all the best in the future and the joy that sailing can give you.
As far as I can I will follow this site, but answers... no.
