My husband has an unusual career. He sails boats for a living. He doesn't SELL boats, which most people can get their arms around, he SAILS them, which baffles everybody! It's a bizarre-o profession, but, can you imagine, he does what he loves to do...and gets paid for it.
He also designs and makes sails for these sailboats, which brings in a little extra cash. Many people ask how many sailboats we actually have...the answer is none. We have enough boats around to play with...and I'd rather play than pay, to tell you the truth. Plus, we could never afford the boat I would be happy with.
About every 3-4 years, something big happens in sailing....the America's Cup. That granddaddy of all yacht races; the elegant merger of technology, skill and great parties, is starting up in the sleepy port town of Valencia, Spain. And the Frenchman is there. See, really there, on the boat...the boat isn't really in water but it's a boat....more to come.. (Click on photo to enlarge).
