24 Years Ago Tonight

24 years ago tonight Doug and I had our first little boy, Mack. Named after Doug’s Dad, David Alexander McConnell, we called him Mack after the Mackinac Sailing Race, which started that year on his birthday. We had a little sailboat in Belmont Harbor and Doug would sail in the big race every year on a friend’s big sailboat. But not this year. The year was 1987.

Mack, a swimmer himself, lives in California now. His flight to England will be 4-l/2 hours longer than ours, but he’ll be there and he’ll be on the guide boat with us across the English Channel.
