Congratulations to Carleton Mitchell on an informative and well-written article about the new cruiser Envoy (Yacht with a Taste for Haste, Feb. 15). Ted Lodigensky's illustrations were also great, especially the cutaway showing the inside of the boat. Thanks.
The predictability of people astounds me! Every January I begin to look forward to your yearly article about some special part of the world, great summer fashions and admirable suntans (A New Era for an Old Island, Feb. 1). After reading the story I fantasize a bit about whether or not I look half as delightful as the models and whether a limited budget will ever allow a trip to some bypassed island like the Dominican Republic. Then I wait. Two weeks later on the nose the 19TH HOLE comes up with exactly what I've been waiting for! Endorsements and canceled subscriptions, expressions of delight and words of disgust. The whole process is terrific!
Thanks for a great magazine and for a side attraction on human behavior.
