Photos of the Day
July 24 - Montserrat
Most of us are fascinated by rare natural phenomenon
such as active volcanoes, and it's a great experience to sail near one. In
the case of Montserrat, gliding beneath the ashen smoke of 3,000-ft Chance
Peak is an eerie reminder of the awesome power of nature. It erupted
catastrophically in 1997, displacing two-thirds of the island's
inhabitants. Today, Montserrat's capital city of Plymouth is reminiscent
of a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie.

it's nice to see that Jan and Signe Twardowski have signed up again. Here's what
they looked like during the Ha-Ha, and later at the Banderas Bay Regatta. We're
looking forward to more good times.
