There are many things that I am passionate about:medicine, music, reading, cooking, etc… but the three that are at the top of my list are flying, sailing and horses.

I grew up around all three, so I guess one might say that they’re in my blood.

Unfortunately, my only real sailing voyages as an adult have been short trips up and down the Left Coast from San Francisco, between Florida and Barbados, and once from San Francisco to Hawaii and return.

Others, like my dear friend Sue Meckley,on her boat, the USSV Dharma have been seeing the world under sail.


I’ve been following her voyage avaristically via e-mail and her web-site.

Fair sea’s Sue … wish I were sailing with you.
