The Triton


This newspaper mixes passions to cover industry


I’m writing to thank you for the newspaper that I have so enjoyed reading for years, and for the networking events that have put me into contact with hundreds of the finest people around that remain my friends and associates.
The key words that describe The Triton, for me, are passion, compassion and dispassion.
Passion because of the depth of feeling, obvious and open commitment to truthful reporting and genuine knowledge behind every subject and writing perfection in each and every article.
Compassion for the crew members who have suffered and often died in their devotion to duty in yachting through no fault of their own, to those who struggle to do their job well yet are unappreciated.
Dispassion in reporting the truth without taking sides.
The current article by Dorie Cox [“Engineers without a Y chromosome,” page A1, October issue] about female engineers is a gem of writing and reporting. It is an article that shows all the above magnificently.
I can relate to all the articles and subjects as I have been in the shoes of all the crew members from deckhand to cook to captain to engineer to vessel owner, and I’ve even worked with the Coast Guard so I see through their eyes as well.
For me, The Triton is The New York Times of yachting, and I am one of the elite and lucky readers. Thank you.
