Soundings - - Mail Boat - — Jack Sher­wood

I was gen­uinely touched by Bill Sis­son’s “Un­der Way” and the trib­ute to my “Bay Trip­per” col­umn in last month’s Mail Boat. A tip of my beat- up hat to the Sound­ings ed­i­tors and read­ers for all the kind words re­gard­ing my decision to re­tire my col­umn. It was a good, happy run of 17 years, and I will miss writ­ing “Trip­per,” if not the monthly dead­lines. But I’d rather be sail­ing, and I will be con­tribut­ing sto­ries to Sound­ings as a writer- at- large — per­haps for the next 17 years, who knows? Older men must learn to adapt to their phys­i­cal lim­i­ta­tions and con­tinue on with the sail­ing life at a brisk pace.
