Yes folks it is officially Take a New Person Sailing Week Sponsored by the take a new Friend sailing Society of North America. The week is dedicated to taking people who have never been sailing and giving rides to those people. In East Undershoe Vermont at 9 am this morning this event was kicked off when sailors form all over Vermont lined up along the sides of the interstate during rush hour with signs inviting anyone who was intetrested to stop for a couple hours and take a sailboat ride. Traffic was held up and has still been snarled for the last few hours. One giddy person was heard to say, " I was on my way to wait in line at the airport and since I was carrying a fine bottle of wine whcih I could not carry on the plane, I thought it was a great plan to take a sailboat ride and share the wine with the owner of the boat. Looped and slurring his words noticeably, Jock sailmaker of West Undershoe told reporters, " That boom used to be a lot higher..I think" and he staggerd off to offer more rides. Officials of the event were delighted at the turn out and plan to continue the event for the entire 168 hours...Escept for Jock who is currently sobering up in the hospitality tent.
