    waves break violently over the prow.

    the lines straining to hold them
    stretch like sinews to the breaking point.

    Inches from the other boats, balanced
    at the knife edge of disaster, you fight
    to keep your craft ahead.

    A race of hours decided in seconds.
    You are exhilarated.
    Exhausted. Enraptured.

Yours was the best the dinner speeches preceding any of these Roundtables.

Given the responses of our guests, my only regret is not allocating more time for your comments and Q&A! Clearly the group would have enjoying hearing more about your exploits. During these challenging economic times, all organizations must employ the 'Out of the box" thinking that you describe.

…Although Mr. Morvillo does not have “sight” as we know it, he sure has an incredible “insight”. In my view, Vince is a natural public speaker who keeps his audience enthralled because he speaks from the heart.

I had the most fortunate privilege of discovering a very "insightful" Houston entrepreneur who has converted his lack of sight (he's been blind since birth) to inspire us all to harness the unimagined. Vince Morvillo is a highly successful business consultant and entrepreneur. …

... He has achieved the unimaginable, becoming the first blind person in history to win a national yachting championship.

... Vince has replaced lack of sight with incredible vision.
