Second Wind


A personal tale of how, as a 36-year-old stay-at-home dad on Nantucket, Nat launched a comeback as a Sunfish racer, training for the championship he had won 15 years before.


“There had been something elemental and all consuming about a Sunfish. Nothing could compare to the exhilaration of a close race in a real blow.”

Nathaniel Philbrick
