This June I spent 2 weeks helping Captain Edwardo Moses move his 53ft Jeanneau "S.V. Sempre Avanti" from Miami to NYC. It was close to 1200 miles of round the clock sailing in variety of sailing conditions with ripped sails, rain squalls, sudden 25 knot winds, snapped halyards etc. Fortunately Captain Edwardo has a PHD in sailing. He was great professor and "S.V. Sempre Avanti" was an amazing classroom. Graduation was held at Great Kills Harbor....my hometown. Post graduation party was held at Lily Red's Bar in Prince's Bay formally "Sheila's Sandbar" the bar my father owned in the late 70s when I was in high school. It's a small world.
