Just one last stopover before Trinidad. Union island. Not my favourite, but a chance to catch up with Ron on his yacht Restless before I get stuck on more mundane matters. No ma, I don’t mean you ma….
In the world of single handed yachtsmen, with 25 years+ of cruising under his belt, Ron is a legend. Well, perhaps an almost legend. Or would be legend, if anyone outside of sailing circles knew about him. Since he doesn’t write a blog, promote a rally or attempt to build a marina like some narcissistic self promoting sailor types, we may never know.
However, we are all waiting on the book!
Speaking of which, I did meet another single hander in Honduras on a gaffer with more than 45 years of cruising who did write a book.
“Little Fish Big Pond” John A. Smith.
Makes my eight years with Eileen seem paltry.
