Big Boats at BootI took this shot at the boot boat show in Dusseldorf last time I went. They have some pretty big boats in the mega-yachts section.

Pan Am Pier SignThis time our photos come from Gimli where Katie Coleman Nicoll was on the scene. She’s an esteemed sailing judge, a fearless reporter and a fine photographer.

My Big Fat Greek Charter

My Big Fat Greek CharterBy Mark Stevens
Photos by: Sharon Matthews-Stevens

We did breakfast yesterday in the Greek port of Piraeus, just outside Athens:strong coffee, crisp bacon, fresh bread, and omelets spiked with Feta Cheese.

We did dinner last night, al fresco, in a village called Perdika on the island of Aegina.

Sometime over dinner it hit me;I knew I was on to something. Raising a glass of ouzo, I toasted my wife, Sharon, and our friends and crew, Ed and Kim North.

“Forget about weddings,” I said, referring to a hit movie penned by a Canadian of Greek ancestry named Nia Vardalos. “Welcome to my Big Fat Greek Charter.”
