Team Paradise helps disabled veterans and others , to
deal with life , and reality. One of the ways they
do it , is to teach sailing.

I really enjoy sailing ; especially Catamarans !

This shot made USA today mag. Funny that :30-min before the shot
was taken , it was blowing near 35kt, and i completely blew
out the main sail ; had to limp back home downwind, using just the
jib .

Why don't you have cheeter legs Billie?

If I had no legs i'd be making myself all sorts of weird legs for shits and giggles. Some for comedy reasons, some for speed. Some for why the hell not...
