Bunkering down for the evening on an Outward Bound pulling boat. This was a mandatory training course/bonding expedition for all the Thompson Island sailing staff before the start of the season, Boston Harbor Islands, June 2008.
Yo, I'm Sam. I'm a twentysomething lady in Los Angeles, a former professional sailor turned screenwriter. I like sailboats and Animorphs and silly stuff and world travel and Battlestar Galactica. Proud member of Hufflepuff House, Amity the Kind, Hermes Cabin, Phoenix Army, and House Greyjoy, with a Cormorant daemon. Devoted fangirl of Asha Greyjoy, Kara Thrace, Rachel Berenson, Sarella Sand, and Petra Arkanian. I'm the real-life version of The Captain from How I Met Your Mother--rumor has it, if you say "boats" three times while looking in the mirror, I'll appear.
