“Nice piece in SAIL! Made my lunch!” Ha! This is so cool! I had several friends and followers send me messages in the Bahamas letting me know I had an article that came out in the February issue of SAIL Magazine. You see? Even when I’m over here in the tropics, I left seeds of sunshine back there for you guys at home! Definitely get out (even in the snow – ha!) and pick up a copy of the February issue of SAIL Magazine to read my Conquistadors and Cruisers article. It was a write-up Peter Nielsen at SAIL (thank you for trusting me again, Peter, with another piece!) requested from me about what makes Pensacola such great cruising grounds for sailors. Phillip (my absolute Idea Guy) had the idea to compare the benefits that cruisers appreciate while sailing in Pensacola’s beautiful waters to what Tristan DeLuna recognized when he sailed to Pensacola from Mexico and established the FIRST European settlement in the states in Pensacola in 1559. Some very cool history for you here. ENJOY!! And, pop quiz, for 500 points: If any of you know what the word “Panzacola” (an Indian tribe that Pensacola was named after) means, throw it in a comment below. Everything’s made up and the points don’t matter. Give it a go!
