Sailing out of Nassau harbour, heading for the unnamed cays. Onlookers wave, compliments echo off the water..."A beauty!"
It was like that all down the Intracoastal Waterway.
Your boat is 37 feet of wellaged teak, with life to it. Real Egyptian cotton sails. There's a dome-shaped brass binnacle with a pivoting compass in the open cockpit, and a worn copy of Blewitt's Celestial Navigation.
You'll settle down for the night in a deserted cove, not one powerboat or electric light in sight.
When the breeze comes up, this is the sweater you'll reach for.
