Is this what they call stalking ?  Hard to know the  rules around here.

If you consider that stalking you are paranoid. All you need to do to check someone's posts is click on their avatar. I was simply noting that he has been missing from the forums for a while, forums he usually has something to say about. Editor doesn't seem bothered by it.

Is he even doing sailing stuff anymore. His website looks WAY old and his social stuff is pretty old. Hope he's doing well.

Clean covered good events, but his journalistic style was just sad. Like he was trying WAY TOO HARD to appear edgy and (give it up, dude) young but instead just looked unorganized and amateur. Love the coverage but, in this case, I'm shooting the messenger.

Why try and get him out of hibernation by asking his whereabouts ? . The site is now bearable that he is no longer involved he does nothing for sailing events or clubs unless they are soothing his ego .

I juts bought a refill of Clorox Clean Up.

If I could get Mr. Clean to do my boat it would make a hell of a difference. I'm tired of getting in my wheelchair and cleaning my boat.
Never got my 6 figure check, but a boat cleaning now ant then would be nice...............................:)

Alan was an entertaining contributor on the forums who Tempesta eventually hired to chase down some original content for the site.

With incredibly limited (non-existent) resources he hunted up some original content, rather than cut and paste press releases or republish articles and blogs from other media outlets. Most of it was entertaining and original. He relied on a network of friends in sailing to connect him with ideas and stories.  He did not have the fact checking resources of the Washington Post so it was not surprising when there were a few terrible "ooops" moments when the so called "friends" gave him a bum steer. It kind of went with the territory.  I know we can all point to some material that never should have seen the light of day......but here's the thing....Alan really loves sailing, and decided to spend a chapter of his life writing in a fresh and unvarnished way about the sport  There was no serious money in it for him and he never claimed to be a "journalist".   I have had my share of full on head butting with Alan, but viewed as a whole, I am thankful for the energy he injected into sailing for the period of time when he was actively writing. Love him or hate him, he set the stage for people to be passionate when talking about sailing.

I am sure that he now enjoying the priorities of being a Dad and husband.

Instead of Clean, we now have to endure ill-informed diatribes from Brian Hancock on ocean racing,  or rants from Peter Huston bemoaning the inevitable exit of the Finn from the Olympics. Its almost enough to make one miss Clean (almost but not quite :))

I liked almost all of his work. 

I also like seemingly 90% of the anarchists ripping on him all the time for no reason.  Entertaining for some reason.

Hopefully Scot can send Brian Hancock to do a review of Clean's weed store when it opens.

Sweet of you to say J

I miss you all very much, even snaggy.

My time working for SA, especially before the lawsuit and then our family fertility problems, when it was still me and Mer on the road, was some of the best of my life.  The network of amazing people we built continues to be a source of great friendship for me today.  To be around as the sailing media found its way in a new world, to be around to witness the birth of sportboats and foiling, the mainstreaming of multihulls, the drama of Larry vs. Ernesto, all the amazing stories and events we worked - it was a real privilege. 

 

I only made about a third of my income from SA, the rest came from commentary and photo/video/social services for classes, events and manufacturers, and I ignored a key fact about working on the road - most of your work comes from working on the road.  So when we had Josephine and I cut back on my travel, I found it hard to get enough gigs to pay for my family. 

 I still work with a handful of companies and events that I really like, so you'll still see me in Charleston, Chicago, and possibly Tokyo.  But that's now mostly just for fun and to take my daughter someplace interesting.  No more begging rich people for work.

I spent the last year helping a friend start up several commercial growing operations.  That was fun and lucrative and I now have a ridiculous library of genetics, but once the setup is over, it's all pretty dull, and after they did their private placement, it became just another corporate gig.

And now, after missing a great deal of my young daughter's life, I've gotten rid of the Delta Skymiles card and am sitting in an office making paper and wearing my lawyer hat again.  Right now I am drafting a construction loan agreement and lease for a new bank for a firm full of nice people and easy going management.

It's not St. Maarten, but it ain't bad when I got this to come home to.

 

Much love to you all, even to the bitches and the haters

As someone who spends a lot of time travelling, podcasts help pass the time and Clean's SA podcast was one of the tops for me. Sailing podcasts are rarely engaging and lighthearted. He nailed it on both accounts. It is sadly missed.

Good luck to you, Clean and enjoy the family.

The whiners will move on to something else as per usual.

Off-road dirt bikes are fine, imo. A reasonable risk.  All my kids had them. No four wheelers. Never bikes on the street.  Being able to kick start a 125 and rip over dirt is good for a girl's self-esteem.

I miss your race commentating and interviews Clean. One of the few with any actual knowledge and something intelligent to say. Good to hear you're making the most of family life.

Those who promote, manage,  and report on  multiple sailing events  every year essentially travel for a living. 

I don’t see how a person can perform proper version of  a career like Clean’s and also have a life.

Gardens, dogs, cats, church choirs, bowling teams, local fleets, lawns, girlfriends, wives, children, and pretty much everything “normal” requires personal presence. 

Even though 3rd base for the Yankees  pays a whole lot of money, a person has to give up  huge chunk of irreplaceable life in exchange. 

Good for you mr Clean!! I hope you have a nearby Wednesday night fleet and a hall pass so you can go for dinner with the gang after  the races.

Jesus Gouver this is a small provincial club we are talking about! You can't just parachute Clean in there!!

Yes it is hard to see who would want to give up weeding the yard, feeding the cats, taking the dog out for a shit , mowing the lawn, feeding the kids and placating the wife (me) simply tp earn millions traveling around the country playing base ball with the boys.      But somehow my husband doesnt think it sounds too bad!
