Adrenaline in the Moonlight


No amount of gear or preparation can prevent the unavoidable. When it's not your time, just give thanks, 'cause it's not your time.

By Douglas Bernon 

"Trees may not grow in the ocean, but they can float. In the dark of night, 94 miles offshore, as we sailed between the Rosario islands of Colombia and the San Blas islands of Panama, a big one, longer than Ithaka, jerked us from seven knots to a teeth-rattling dead stop. Bernadette was on watch, in the cockpit, and I was asleep below when we hit. Jolted horribly, Ithaka rose up, fell, and shuddered, throwing me off the settee. "
