I know I've pointed this out to regular readers of the blog, but I'm sailing to Hawaii! Whoohoo!
On Monday night, I went to a weather seminar given by the incredible Stan Honey and Pineapple Sails' equally talented Kame Richards. I, of course, learned a lot (that's easy when you start at a base of zero) but that's not really the point.
I sat down at a table with Garrett (Oceanaire's owner) and Chris (my next slip neighbor and singlehanded sailing superstar). Looking at the table, I realized I needed a beer so I got up and asked if anyone else wanted one. Nobody did, but Garrett pulled out his wallet and said he'd buy it for me. And that's the point. Why would he buy me a beer when he's enabling me to SAIL TO HAWAII!
That's right, I get to SAIL TO HAWAII!
