The spectacle and wonder of the Cortez Bank was exposed for those few who ventured briefly there. Intense and glorious with power, tall breaking waves hurled boats and stomachs with glee. Such conditions Slacker had not seen, suffering a mild knock down to ensure a cold wet misery. Racing turned to staying warm and getting home.
Reason does not abide such recklessness. Yet within some burns the spirit to experience and accomplish the unusual. My friend and fellow PSSA Board Member Ed Webber passed away last week. I am deeply saddened that Ed did not get to have the glory of the Cortez Bank in his wake.
