The Beauty Of Simplicity

spade_1[1]_smAs we get older, Phyllis and I are getting simpler. No, I don’t mean in the head, or at least that’s not what this post is about. Rather in the way we evaluate the functionality, or lack thereof, of equipment and systems on Morgan’s Cloud.

Examples of Simplicity

Here are a few examples of decisions we have made that were driven by our desire for simplicity:

John was born and brought up in Bermuda and started sailing as a child, racing locally and offshore before turning to cruising. He has sailed over 100,000 miles, most of it on his McCurdy & Rhodes 56, Morgan's Cloud, including eight ocean races to Bermuda, culminating in winning his class twice in the Newport Bermuda Race. He has skippered a series of voyages in the North Atlantic, the majority of which have been to the high latitudes. John has been helping others go voyaging by sharing his experience for twenty years, first in yachting magazines and, for the last 18 years, as co-editor/publisher of AAC.
