Hylas Life

S/V Vanishing Point at anchor in the Great Salt Pond on Block Island. They call this island the Bermuda of New England. Many years ago I bought my first sailboat just so I could sail here.

I brought back a brochure for a Hylas 49 and taped it to my refrigerator door in my Manahatten apartment. After 10 years its still taped up there...The dream became reality. I still have to pinch myself somtimes when I step onboard to make sure Im not just dreaming!
