This is the Tenacious, under full sail.
This photo was taken by our Boson's mate, Max.
for navigation. Our skipper is very bright, patient, competent and an accomplished sailor. You should see him walk on top the yards.

It seems we were always reefing the sails
or bracing the yards.
Here we are on the bowsprit, the most dangerous place to sit.
Here I am enjoying the weather.
Sometimes the weather was cold
As you can see, by looking at the horizon, the ship is listing about 10 degrees to port.
Imagine trying to roll a wheelchair on a ship's deck when the ship is pitching, yawling, and rolling (moving in 3 dimensions) and moving forward while it is listing. Whoever thought that putting a wheelchair on a sailing vessel was a good idea, must have been crazy and I want to thank him for that.
