Sailing

Early September, 1983 Gloucester, Massachusetts

Kathryn Hollett’s family had a summer home in Annisquam. Through their backyard you could walk down to the ocean. In the later part of that summer Kathryn introduced me to sailing. I have always loved rides that involve a high-speed rush and having the wind push you definitely qualifies. One night we were out for a sail at sunset & storm clouds were gathering. The early evening sky was amazing with gray clouds swiftly rolling in over the water. In the distance we saw a flash of what would soon by coming our way. I remember joking that if we didn’t make it back the Gloucester Times would have headlines about the City Council Candidate & his campaign manager being mysteriously lost at sea. Fortunately we made it to land about ten minutes before the first roll of thunder.
