In The Shadow Of Cousteau
A forgery, a train ticket and an address. The childhood dreams of Damien Leloup hung in the balance as he awoke in his parents’ home in the town of Montcourt-Fromonville, France. The forged sick note would get him out of school. The train ticket woul

What Makes A Legend?
There’s nothing better than a good sea story. Two of my favorites take place on the same body of water, decades apart. The first happened when I was around 10 years old; I remember being below on my family’s Egg Harbor, which was rare and reserved fo

Sea Ray Sundancer 370
In 2018, Sea Ray ceased production of yachts over 40 feet to focus on its smaller sportboat and cruiser series. So, when an invitation came to sea-trial the builder’s first new cruiser since that landmark decision—the 2021 Sundancer 370—I jumped at t

I decided to pack the jersey. It was still wrapped in a layer of squeaky plastic, but I placed it gingerly into the waterproof rucksack with the same level of care a curator would afford to an original Monet. Stepping out of the Lyft, I wondered if a
