One of the things that greatly increases my pleasure in sailing "Strider" is writing for the wonderful New England regional sailing magazine Points East. They have graciously given me permission to post pdf reprints of my earlier articles here. "Points East" is free at most marine stores and facilites in New England but worth a subscription if you live elsewhere; especially if you plan to visit the East Coast's best cruising grounds someday.
