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."

This is the company I mentioned that does Cape Horn sailing:

They have places free for cruising Cape Horn this April!

O Docker

Have been to the BVI quite a bit, but nowhere else in the Caribbean. Maybe it's too much of a cliché, but I'd still like to see St. Barts (St. Barths?) at least once. I don't have $100 for a sandwich, but I could pack a lot of peanut butter and just live on that for a week. The idea of being able to dinghy in to someplace warm and tropical that has fresh croissants is driving me nuts.


Worst Marine Guy is going to sail Stars and Stripes in St. Maarten? Ha. What a loser. Tillerwoman and I raced that boat in St. Maarten and beat it. Ha!

St. Barts is worth a trip. Loved it there. Not exactly $100 for a sandwich but Tillerwoman and I did spend $100 on lunch at a beach bar there. But what a lunch!
