2017 Stage 2, Day 14: Lets all be heroes

 In today’s episode we hit record as the Team Freya’s gums flap in whatever breeze is out there as he works his way in the final stretch to Ketchikan, challenged and happy as he negotiates the last bit of the course without the anchor that he lost some miles back. He can’t really stop, so we expect him to get in soon.We also catch up with Team Sistership for a post race wrap up with Michelle, Johanna, and Stephanie. Splintered centerboards, challenged spirits, they reconnect with why the hell they wanted to do this race for the second time in the first place. Their reason is killer, and we wanted to give it context, but realized that someone else already did.

“…having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off – then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.” – Moby Dick.

You can call us Ishmael, but we like it when you call us Big Poppa. Either way, this is your Daily Fix
