Racing Season Approacheth
I wanted to express to my German friend Henri how exciting racing sailboats is. He is an amazing photographer so if you haven't heard of him check out World of White Trash. Anyway, he needs a new adrenaline rush since he's kind of done with mountain climbing so I suggested sailing. He said it was too slow. He thought I meant poking around on a lake. No, no, no! When you race sailboats, especially big ones in large fleets, it's like playing chicken with a truck. The clock is ticking, people are screaming, boats sometimes hit, your heart races...it rocks. Not better than sex, but very similar at times. You're finessing and cajoling this beautiful feminine beauty to get the optimum performance out of you both for the most satisfying outcome possible. Um...anyway... Henri lives in Berlin so maybe that's a little far from the sea. Anyone have any exciting new hobby ideas for poor Henri? Let's hear 'em. Better yet visit him and leave a suggestion!
