But the follow up is quite close: wind in your sails. I was lucky to join races at the Sandy Bay Yacht Club races on Star boats (awesome!) and on Rhodes 19. The club in Rockport, MA, on Cape Ann sports other one design races as well, for example on Bulls Eyes, Flying Scots and 470s. These two pics - thanks to Mike Lane - show the start of the Rhodes 19 division on June 29th 2012 and my humble self skippering Brian Bones' "Amenomania".
Which is a clever pun, me thinks: This word was invented by Shackleton's crew members, sitting tight on their ice floe after the "Endurance" was lost. Only wind or death could free them from their misery - so they got obsessed with the force and direction of the wind.
