Boat­ing: the great lev­eler

Yachts International - - Engage - GAry dESANCtiS kENNy wootoN edi­to­riAl

Re­ally en­joyed Kenny Wooton’s re­cent per­sonal ac­count of edit­ing du­ties at your Bloody Mary meet­ing with the leg­endary Bill Buck­ley in “A Man of Many Words” [March]. It must have been a ner­vous en­deavor on your part, but ob­vi­ously eased by his hos­pi­tal­ity and ge­nial man­ner. Be­ing an avid col­lec­tor of ship mod­els, I also en­joyed the re­cent “Off the Scale” fea­ture on mas­ter ship model maker Mal­colm Darch [Jan­uary/Fe­bru­ary]. Great pho­tog­ra­phy. —Bob Basche Great “From the Mast­head” [March]. I sel­dom find my­self in political align­ment with Wil­liam F. Buck­ley, Jr., but al­ways find his views thought­ful and en­gag­ing. As you said quite well in your edi­to­rial, boat­ing is a great lev­eler. I never cease to be amazed that a CEO and a trash col­lec­tor could be slip mates and great friends on the week­end and never cross paths any­where else in life. Af­ter all, the plea­sure of boat­ing is in­versely pro­por­tion­ate to the size of the boat, which is one of the rea­sons I own a Typhoon. —ed Roberts

The qual­ity of jour­nal­is­tic en­deavor con­stantly ex­hib­ited by Yachts In­ter­na­tional is equal to any pub­li­ca­tion, marine or oth­er­wise, and su­pe­rior to most. Nowhere is this bet­ter ex­em­pli­fied than the ar­ti­cle on Wil­liam Buck­ley in your March is­sue. Out­stand­ing piece, Kenny. I look for­ward to more of the same. —ed Sacks
