It was wonderful to read about Andre's adventures, a young man I taught in the 4th grade. As a retired teacher, it so rewarding to read about the paths students have chosen. Andre was a delight to have in the classroom and a very inquisitive student. Go Andre....enjoy every adventure!

I like finding news about the Tamasha. I once sailed it up here in the Pacific Northwest for 6 years. i would love to know more about what Tamasha is up to. It is a great boat.
