Tough As Nails

Last Wednesday our really good friend, Zach Frank, flew from Atlanta to Florida and boarded Adagio to sail with us down the coast to Miami.  Marc met Zach in middle school and they were best friends for two years.  Then Zach moved to Cincinnati and Marc and Zach lost touch.  But Marc and Zach ran…
