After learning of the terrible destruction dished out to the Philippines by Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful in history, we feared for the safety of longtime friend David Addleman of Monterey. He did several Ha-Ha’s with his Cal 36 Eupsychia, then moved up to the Santa Cruz 50 X, which he purchased several years ago in Johor Baru, Malaysia. He’s been kicking around Malaysia and the Philippines ever since.
"Are you alright?" we emailed David.
"Yes," he replied. "The cruisers here and in the Puerto Galera area — about 60 miles south of Manila — were spared any serious damage. We just did the All Souls Regatta here. I’ll send a story and pics soon. Congrats on another fine Ha-Ha. Next year I’m so there. Maybe."
