When I was a little girl, my favorite book was "Old Man Rabbit's Dinner Party", wherein the long eared protagonist foraged with abandon through Farmer Brown's field, and when his larder was fully stocked, he declared, "I have lots of food. I will give a dinner party for all my friends."

Do you remember Little Feat and "Put on your Sailing Shoes"? I'm feeling a little nostalgic this week, thank you in advance for indulging me. Above is my friend Steve's Swan 48, Dreamcatcher, moored in Katama harbor on Martha's Vineyard. I took this photo a few summers ago, on the way out to his boat to race in the Round the Island Race. His regular crew included a lot of our old Dartmouth college sailing teammates from the 1980s, but all of them continue to race a lot more than I do. I got invited to this regatta for several years running, I think because I could get good restaurant reservations in Edgartown, and because I had wonderful friends in town who'd let the whole crew use their shower.
