Just to forget Manafort and slavery and DJT for a few minutes, here are two curious articles on a fellow wooden sailboat guy;

For Einstein, sailing was an escape. "He used to sail as a way to think. I think he loved the solitude of it, the serenity of it."

for me, too..

For me too Durnik. My fellow club members do not quite understand that sailing for me is the pleasure of being on the water and continue to encourage me to race. I always sign on so the tower and rescue boat know I'm on the water, but I have only finished 4 races, 3 marathons up the river, and one by accident. But they do acknowledge that whenever they pass near me I've got a big grin on my face.
