SAIL - - Under Sail -

• We ended up on a perfect beach. There was suf­fi­cient but not too much grade, with pure soft sand and the Coast Guard sta­tion a block away.

• Our boat, Averi, is ex­cep­tion­ally strong. She stood up to three days of pound­ing surf after be­ing run aground. I can take some credit here, spend­ing the better part of two years re­build­ing her and mak­ing sure she was right and tight.

• There were peo­ple on the beach watch­ing the full moon rise. On any other night there may not have been any­one. Leo, our par­tic­u­lar sav­ior, called the Coast Guard be­fore we hit the shoal off­shore.

• Although down with the flu, my wife, Ni­cola, was up on deck when she had to be, think­ing of things I could not!

• We were in­sured.
