On Saturday the old "sage of the sea" Commodore Dick Squire from Cal Yacht Club arrived to crew with Alex down the coast. Dick is the real "Master and Commander" having owned and operated some 40 different sail and power boats over the years. He's single-handed to Hawaii and around Mexico's Guadalupe Island and back. He and his wife Harriet on their 60 foot Offshore "Seagate" buddy cruised with Wild Blue to Alaska and the Queen Charlottes in 2008. It's great to have Dick aboard for this trip. We met Dick at the airport in the chauffered City of Des Moines pick up truck. What a great town!
