There’s been a lot of progress going on aboard Yahtzee these days. While Jill’s been working during the week, I’ve been getting as much done with the boys as possible and then when the weekends come, I’m on it. The thing is, I’ve found that even though a number jobs have been started, there aren’t many that have been finished. […]
As always, the folks at the Race to Alaska and Northwest Maritime Center (NWMC) are once again keeping fans, competitors and potential competitors on their toes for the 2018 event. Or should we say, events. The big announcement on Wednesday was the addition of a new race from Tacoma ...

It’s early Monday morning after racing Round the County and the wind has been blowing like snot since about 1 a.m. I’m back at Shilshole aboard Cambria, now, which is double tied, but still some of the big gust are pretty noticeable.

For the first time in the show’s 71-year history, there will be three locations — indoors at CenturyLink Field Event Center and afloat at South […]
It’s no secret that I’m absolutely infatuated with Alaska. The place is truly amazing. But I’m also not going to mince words in that I’m finding it increasingly difficult to be the sailor and writer who can contentedly sit by and write about sailing while not actually being on the water.
