A ‘cool’ reminder of my youth just a few decades ago

Posted By on December 30, 2010


I saw a photo of a couple of crazy sailors (are there any other kind?) that reminded me of my teenage years with high school friend Charlie “Kamakaze” Matthews sailing the “Fiberpile” in late winter and early spring. We were so anxious to get back on the water that one of us would bounce up and down in order to break through the thin ice. Eventually we would icebreak our way to clear water and some brisk sailing. Great memories.

The “Fiberpile”
