Jerry grew up sailing on the coast of Maine. He is a salty dog at heart. So after discovering the Royal Bali Yacht Club (a small thatched roof shack at the end of Sanur Beach) he joined and bought himself a small sailboat called a Laser. He is number 905. The first sail was a regatta where a bunch of guys chased another guy on a somewhat windless day inside the natural bay created by the reef offshore. The air is balmy and the clear turquoise water is warm and fairly shallow—a far cry from sailing in Maine. I am looking forward to my first sail.
