The origin of Messing About In Sailboats

  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

A life well lived, and an inspiration to us all. I liked the metaphor that Sail West used too.... "There's a saying in aviation, a code of honor: Fly it all the way to the scene of the crash."

May we all have the guts to fly it all the way to the crash as well as Nick did when our time comes.


Ah, bummer. Great inspiring story. Makes me want to spend less time on the couch.


Thanks for drawing Nick's achievements to my attention. What an inspiring story and with a beautiful though sad ending. But what memories for his loved ones.
