Sailing on hard water

Contributing editor David Berson recently tried hard water sailing and wrote a piece about it for the N.Y. Times (David is seen in this Paul J. Bereswill photo for the N.Y. Times). Since David writes our nav problem pieces for the magazine and the email newsletter, we wondered if perhaps he tried to take a sextant sight as he was skittering over the ice at 50 mph.
