    Default Texas 200 article

    So, I sailed the Texas 200 last year in my brother's Phoenix III. This month SAILING magazine is running my article about the event, and here's a link where you can read the piece online if anyone's interested.

    http://sailingmagazine.net/article-1...-200-step.html

    Enjoy--just a month or so to go until this year's Texas 200!

    Thanks for the kind words--I appreciate it. It's definitely an event to try once, at least. I seem to have developed an unjustified fondness for it... I suppose that means I'll be back again, maybe 2018?

    Great yarn, Tom!

    Sounds like an interesting trip, despite the lack of pubs.

    Nice piece. The heat might do me in, but otherwise sounds great.

    I once attended a professional conference in Houston, in mid-May. It was hot. There was a tub of beer on ice at every meal and mid-day, and a slushie-dispensing margarita machine at lunch as well. The conference ended in Galveston at the Elissa dock (square-rigged tall ship), and it finally cooled off a little in the evening.
