His most frightening moment came when he pulled the next-to-last bottle of beer from the bilge. Dodge Morgan circumnavigated alone 27,000 miles around the world on his sailboat American Promise in 1986 after five months at sea in a record-shattering time of 150 days, 1 hour and 6 minutes, cleaving the previous record in half.

French Travels

Allaire is not a pretty village. It has nothing really to recommend it, in that there is little to differentiate it from many other French villages, but equally there is not much to dislike.  It is like many other villages. It has a church in the middle and an assortment of new and old houses. […]
