Winter Play and Why No Recent Post on Sailing

Would any of you reading believe that playing in the woods of Vermont, seeking out one stash of fresh powder after another could lead into talks about the 33rd edition of the America's Cup and reliving the stories of Volvo Ocean Race 2008-09?

Well, it can! A number of my fellow colleagues at Mad River Glen Ski area are serious sailors and follow the sport as religiously as they seek out fresh tracks. I wish we'd all be chatting more about the Face-off in Valencia but since many are working their way through copies of Spanish Castle to White Night - we seem to find unique connections between the offshore adventure and a back-country trek.

This leads to the infrequent sailing coverage at BoatBites (for now...) I'll be back into the circuit after the snow melts. Till then, Winter Play with fellow sailors in the mountains of Vermont guides my path. Be back soon! Don't be surprised if the next report is from Spain, chasing the latest in Volvo scoop and counting down to the 2010-11 edition of the Barcelona World Race!

Fair Winds!
