There are many possible causes for...

Jenny and I could never forget Daq'Attack. And I thought, yeah, you can't forget Daq' Attack. Not because I'm anything special, but because it's an odd name. It's unique (some would say unique because no one else would want it).

Letter From Aventura

Closing the Circle with Neptune's Approval When a sailboat crosses the equator, the meaning of the voyage is as distilled as the celebratory libations BY JIMMY CORNELL For many years, the accepted tactic for anyone planning to sail from South Africa to either northern Europe or the Mediterranean was to stay with favorable winds as long as possible by making a long detour via the Lesser Antilles. The alternative routes, via the Azores, is considerably shorter but entails being hard on the wind...

Maybe try and work the whole sequence backward to get a real grasp on the matter. First off, that was my old friend Mark...
