I don't think she is saying this is what we should remember about Bernard but just that's it's an interesting story.
P.S. Lin also just posted that "Taleisin" is going up for sale
. Anybody looking to buy a piece of cruising history
I just had a look at their public facebook page and I don't see any post saying Taleisin is going up for sale
. Not that I could afford it in my wildest dreams.
About BM -- at least he didn't fabricate his voyages like Tristan Jones. So he was in a Cabo bar getting drunk and chasing chicks, and the yachting press got a different version of Joshua's shipwreck
. This sort of story just adds to the 'Moitessier Mystique' if you ask me.
