Chandler's: "We're continuing RTW", avoiding Somalia this time

What great sentiment of the retired couple who were captured by pirates in 2010.

Mrs Chandler said: "From day one our close family and friends were very keen that we should get back to normal, they were very worried that would be permanently scarred by what had happened to us, and I think it was reassuring to them that, having found out that we had our boat back, that the Navy had brought our boat back for us, for them to know that we did actually want to restore it, and get back to cruising to get our lives back again, was reassuring to them."

Wow. Godspeed.

Avb3, why post this in seamanship? Shouldn't it be in cruising news?

Your right... I think my mouse slipped. I will see if a mod can move it.

I would think if anyone listed the characteristics of a dedicated sailor, this would be at the top.

Are they really avoiding Somalia this time? I thought they said that last time too!
