May 1991 my brother Rick was camped at the South Col of Everest. It had been a white out and blowing over 60 for the past 4 days. His team managed to fix some ropes toward the summit but they were mostly pinned down. In 2011 Sabre Yachts, an extremely well run, boat builder stopped making sailboats, why?? Not because no one wanted to buy them, but rather because they were making little or no money building them.

I know the first thing you are thinking is that sailboats are not inexpensive. For what you get they are actually excellent values. In 2011 Sabre Yachts, an extremely well run, boat builder stopped making sailboats, why??

My first sales position in the yachting business was with Sailboats Northeast. I started in August 1980. I was a commissioned salesman for SBNE selling mostly new boats, some trade-ins, and some used boats. Most of the new boats I sold were in stock in our inventory in Marblehead. They were lined up in a storage area in a lumber yard.

February 2021 almost completes a full year of the Covid pandemic. How much longer this will go on no one knows, but there is light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine.

Single and double handed yacht racing has been around for a long time. The Vendee Globe race is going on right now. You should check out the videos on the web site, amazing. Most shorthand sailboat racing has been long distance but there is some local shorter racing available. The Beringer and Ted Hood Regattas this summer had shorthanded racing classes.
