A new book idea! Racing sailor has a near-death accident and then disappears. Sort of like God of Skiing. We find her in some out of the way anchorage and she has become a bodhisattva. She is like the reluctant messiah of Bach. Magical, but also humble and quiet. Based on Moitessier maybe – or Coyote and Mike Plant. She leads us into situations that test and dissolve our ego-ness. Lives for compassion and to alleviate suffering and anti-ambition. Boat is immaculate, and small.
The ocean is a charactor, the boats are charactors. Not preachy – funny and warm and somewhat sad at the end but uplifting. Work in progress.
