Sails and Tales
Towards the middle of the course, Adam and I were in Venice Beach and he decided to by a taser for his girlfriend. Fifteen minutes later we were on my boat getting ready to test it out. The thing felt like a snake bite and getting punched at the same time but just for a second. After that we found we were able to study much better and stay awake hours longer (do not try this at home)!
After the 3 weeks of class, it was time for the exams. The 6-pack tests were much harder than the 100 ton but I lucked out on the chart plotting as I’ve been doing it for as far back as I can remember.
I did pretty much all the boat shows in America this year and then 2 in Canada. Among the best was the Vancouver show. I was able to bring an assistant, my good buddy Taylor and I were off.
I was also at the Chicago, Miami and Oakland shows which were great times.
I was with my sponsors from Sailology, a really cool marine invention company.
Check them out at sailology.com.
They have recently picked up the distributorship for a company call
ed Smart Kat and we had their west coast debut at the Oakland show.
My buddy, Adam andI have been doing deliveries lately which has been really great. We have been able to get our boats in ahead of schedule and safe. We make a good team although, we are still trying to figure out a name for when we get hired. We were thinking ‘somet
hing delivery boys’. Let me know any suggestions.
Well, here in California, its been getting warmer and summer is close. I’ve decided to teach people to sail onboard Intrepid during the weeks that I won’t be delivering boats. I’m really excited to start.
Well thats it for now. I’ll be writing up a story of a bash up the coast from Long Beach to San Fran in a couple of day

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had an awesome holiday season. Over here at the Sunderland camp its been good; crazy as always. My good buddy Will came back from Wheaton College for Christmas and stayed with us for a week. It was great to see him and take a break from school for a few weeks. I'll be staying with Will in February when I am in Chicago for the Chicago Boat Show.
Just getting ready to head out to Toronto for the Toronto International Boat Show. I'm going to be doing a couple of presentations on my circumnavigation. I haven't been there since I was 4 so I'm looking forward to it, although from what I hear, its buried in snow and freezing this time of year. I'll will keep you posted on that one while I'm there.
So with the the start of the new year it is pretty likely we all have some resolutions. I've got a couple of goals myself. The first is to get my captain's license and the second is to be off on another adventure.
Here is the link for the Toronto International Boat Show. I will be there the 13-16th. Hope to see you there! http://www.torontoboatshow.com/
