    Favorite sailing story? I recall hearing of a British crew who were becalmed, and was forced to survive for days on nothing but food and water. In all my years sailing, never have I had to endure such hardship. Fair winds to you all.

    Ahoy Benevento. I am Joyce’s cousin and was very interested to hear of your adventure.
    Hailing Port: San Francisco, CA USA
    Boat: s/v Cinnabar – Custom Schumacher 52′
    After a summer in the SF Bay Area we are heading back to our boat in La Paz and plan to do a season in the Sea of Cortez, then in 2015 (hopefully) head to destination New Zealand via the south Pacific. Maybe our paths will cross going opposite directions?

    Seattle, WA Endeavor 46′ steel yawl (Tingen) Launched in 1962 – Vinkeveen The Netherlands….David may have a different answer, but my favorite destination so far is Mexico’s Sea of Cortez…warm water, good diving, friendly native peoples, not too crowded, and you get a 10 year cruising permit when you enter…what could be better than that??

    We met in Hyannis, Cape Cod, MA last summer just before your T/A departure. Saw your boat in Saquetucket Harbor too but you weren’t aboard. Great to hear your adventures from Spain! Hurricane force winds! Nicely done. Fair winds!

    Hi folks Was perusingyour site to find Erik Bloise, Y’no the doc from TEXASS. Am anxious to see the progeny of such a guy who always deserved my major respect for his handling of a situation that was WAY “beyond the Pale.” ESPECIALLY at the tender age of 20. I have the dubious distinction of being among the first english speakers Erik met in Hiva Oa in the French Marquises
    Dateline 1989, A new boat just came in behind us and barely made the turn into the harbor. The guy on deck appeared disoriented or exhausted but got some kinda CRAP danforth looking thing and snagged her just short of the surf line. We , having just gone ashore from 30 days at sea, could barely stand up and were110 yards and a dinghy ride away. We watched him lay down on deck. …………….

    For those of you who know the stuff Erik is made of this is the best of a Tusitalas delights. For the ones who have been kept in the dark by the self effacing nature of Erik It is too wonderful of a story to not make a movie. ? Jay Myers. Retired in the San Fran/ Sac. Delta . Any friend of Eriks is ours too.
    ( I wonder if I’m in trouble for this? Ah Well! )
