On this week's episode, members of AGLCA's Home Port Crew will talk about the Spring Rendezvous & Reunion, and what attendees can expect this year from the educational seminars and the social events. We've got some great new sessions that we're excited to share!
Our guest will be Bob Reynolds, the grandson of boat builder Scott J. Matthews, who did the Great Loop in 1906. Bob provided photos and his grandfather's written account of the journey for a new documentary. Below is the info from a press release about the documentary, and a preview can be seen here: http://www.matthewsboatownersassoc.com/
"In 1890, Scott J. Matthews founded the Matthews Boat Company in Bascom, Ohio. Fifteen years later, in 1906, Matthews, designed and built a 70 foot yacht. This vessel was capable of taking himself, and family of four, plus two others, on a 9,000 mile trip.
The adventure, of almost one year, transversed the eastern half of the United States, which is now referred to as the "Great Loop". This trip was a "first" for a private yacht and its success resulted in moving the Matthews Company to Port Clinton in 1906.
This past year, in collaboration with the Maritime Museum of Sandusky, a documentary was made. It includes many of the original photos taken along the way. The narrative is based on the written account of Scott Matthews."
Wednesday's edition of The Thomas Loop Radio Show on AM-1440, WJJL - features an interview with author over the phones, Jim Gourley - in support of his new book, The Race Within - Passion, Courage, and Sacrifice at The Ultraman Triathlon. The book can be accessed on www.triumphbooks.com. At the top of the broadcast - I'll be over the phones talking conference playoff hockey with Head Coach of Buffalo State College Men's Hockey Program, Nick Carriere.
Overview of The Race Within -
The Ultraman Triathlon, one of the most remarkable endurance races in the world, is a three-day, 320-mile race that circumnavigates the Big Island of Hawaii. With only 40 competitors allowed in each year, this invitation-only event hosts some of the most superlative athletes on the planet. The Race Within discusses the 30-year history of the sport and race director Jane Bockus, former Pan Am flight attendant who has never done a triathlon, yet has dedicated herself to keeping the event true to its founding spirit for decades. This book follows Jane, her assistants, and a small cast of athletes through an entire year—from the end of the 2012 Ultraman to the 2013 event—and shows how they faced new challenges to the growth and well-being of the event, and were forced to question if old traditions could survive in a world of constantly-evolving sports entertainment. Granted full access to the race and the athletes, author Jim Gourley presents a look at this unique event and examines what it means to truly love sports.
This week's Great Loop Radio podcast guest is Bud Lloyd, Cruising Editor for Waterway Guide's Southern Edition. Loopers are heading north, and Bud will guide us through the two routes they're taking to Stuart, Florida: Lake Okeechobee and the ICW in southern Florida.
Join us for important up-to-date information on the attempts in Florida to restrict anchoring!
Florida Senate Bill 1548 titled “An Act Related to Vessel Safety”, addresses many valid safety issues related to the anchoring of derelict boats. However, it also contains controversial proposals limiting boaters’ ability to anchor in areas “within 200 feet of developed waterfront property” from one hour past sunset until one hour before sunrise.
The Seven Seas Cruising Association leads a team that includes AGLCA, BoatUS and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in the fight against pending restrictions on the right to anchor in Florida.
Joining us to talk about SSCA and their efforts in Florida is Dave Skolnick. Dave is a naval architect and marine engineer, a communications professional, and the immediate Past President of SSCA. He works as a member of the SSCA Concerned Cruisers' Committee (CCC) to support cruisers' rights. Dave owns Auspicious Works in Annapolis, Maryland providing communications and navigation equipment services and delivery support to cruisers.
We'll also be joined by David Doyle, an AGLCA member who is a waterfront landowner in Florida. He'll share his opinion on the issue.

So Now What?
Mother Teresa changed the world. Steve Jobs and Steve Wosniak of Apple Computers changed the world, Rosa Parks, Oprah Winfrey, Jesus, the Buddha, they all changed the world even though they were only one person.
I want to read to you a short story by Julie Tallard Johnson that is a perfect illustration of how one person can change somebodies world. She wrote:
Perhaps you know the story of the girl who walked three miles, on a busy street, to kill herself by jumping off a bridge. She looked into the faces of dozens of strangers as she walked slowly to the bridge. People either looked away or stared back at her. For three miles no one said hello or inquired about the stress and pain on her face.
As she approached the bridge, where only a month earlier a friend of hers had jumped to his death, she saw the face of a man smiling at her. He was just an ordinary man, carrying a briefcase in one hand and walking fast somewhere. But he slowed down enough to give her a big smile of recognition. She had to smile back, even though he was a stranger...
