|As a married sailor, I received
and was expected to live off base so I moved aboard a
sailboat and lived at Marina
Cortes on Harbor Island.
I named the boat "Le Rana" which is sort of Latin for "The Frog."
(In Latin, frog is a feminine noun, but I used the masculine pronoun because, well, I'm a guy.)
This was during America's Cup '95. One of my neighbors in the marina was a sail maker for America 3. I was also a member of TSPYC which sponsored the Tag Hauer challenge so I got America's Cup fever and sailed out and attended as many races as I could.
