MANN MEM­ORY

Yachting - - MANN MADE -

In 2003, I was at the helm of the 65-foot Paul Mann Poor Girl off Vir­ginia Beach, do­ing 35 knots in a steep chop. Her own­ers were next to me, and Mann was be­hind me. I looked at him and asked, “Want me to pull back?” Arms crossed, he said, “Put the throt­tles down. She’ll eat this up all day long.” And she did too. —Pa­trick Sci­acca
