Hi MIke:

Just finished a book that made me think of you:  _Sailing 
Back in Time_ by Maria Coffey and Dag Goering.  Sub-
titled "A Nostalgic Voyage on Canada's West Coast", it
is about a cruise in company of two wooden engine-less
sailboats.  Both were junk-rigged.  The larger boat was a
3-masted junk sailed by a very unusual (and now deceased)
couple:  Allen and Sharie Farrell.  Allen was a Wobblie and
a socialist.  I bet you met them since they spent a lot of
time sailing near Lasqueti Island.  Still sailing in their mid-
80's, they gave away their boat and possessions and went 
to live by the beach in Mexico.  Allen, in particular, didn't
like to look back but rather forward to new adventures and 
challenges.  I hope there are many more adventures for you
in Cuba and elsewhere and that you're still having a great

Warm regards, Jerry
