    No Argonauts here...

    From her FB post, I learned of Hester Blum's narrative of her sail on the Morgan four weeks ago. It's a terrific essay, and I highly recommend it: http://lareviewofbooks.org/essay/18-hours-mast. A big slice of it revolves around her fascination with the Morgan's professional sailing cew and her sense that she was a bit of an outsider, an unworthy observer, an "Ishmael". One line in particular made me smile:

     I became conscious of the collective title for me and my fellow scholars as the “38th Voyagers,” with its grand capitalization. It’s not as though we were the Argonauts.

    I know the feeling.
