"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea ..., the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change..., we all came from the sea. And ... we have salt in our blood, our sweat, and in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it, we are going back from whence we came." --Pres. John F. Kennedy,for the America's Cup Crews, 9/14/1962, Newport, R.I.
