The photo is of my shi tzu poodle named Emma at the helm. She won third-place honorable mention in a salty dog photo contest by Soundings magazine. She has been sailing with us for over 10 years now.
One of my lightbulb moments was during our yearly anniversary sail charter. I wondered what my life would be like living in shorts and bare feet with the wind in my hair without meetings, dresses, heels, magazines, books or a Bible. I sailed away from the org in 2011. I still don't own a dress. Just sayin!
