Re: What Happened to s/v Wavewalker ?

Hi Judy
That's wonderful - thanks. Have located and purchased the book from Bookdepository.co.uk. Can't wait to receive and read it - we certainly had an eventful voyage up through the Pacific Islands so will be keen to see how he depicts that. Thanks again, Ross

Schooner to the Southern Oceans is a great read, I fully recommend it. Gordon's website: www.gordoncook.co.uk

I sailed on the Wavewalker in 1988 from Papeete to the Tuomotos and to Rarotonga. I heard she later went down in a storm.

Re: What Happened to s/v Wavewalker ?

I am trying to track down one of the crew members from Wavewalker - Michael Brown who I think was on board in the mid 80s and might still be sailing. Let me know if anyone has any contact details.

Re: What Happened to s/v Wavewalker ?

Hi,

I located Gordon about a year ago and have corresponded via email. He is in England at gordon@ibuk.com

Hope that helps!

Re: What Happened to s/v Wavewalker ?

I was living in Fiji when Wavewalker got washed up on the beach at Plantation Island in a cyclone. She was refloated and taken to Neisau Marina (Lautoka) where she sank at the marina in shallow water and lay there for a while until she was put on the hard stand at the marina. A local guy (Richard Eyre) took on the task of restoring her and last time I saw her (Around 1994) she was back in the water anchored off Neisau Marina. There must be people in Fiji who know what happened after that - Richard still lives there and will have more to add to the story off Wavewalker. I always remember asking him about the engine and he said there was none - "Captain cook never had one so why should I" was his answer.

Re: What Happened to s/v Wavewalker ?

Hi Gordy

Thanks so much for getting back to me about Wavewalker! You might be interested to know that through posts on this thread I located Gordon and Mary Cook, have gotten back in touch with them and spent 6 days visiting in the UK this past summer!!! We had a wonderful reunion, I met their, now grown, children who were only 9 and 10 when I last saw them in Hawaii and their kids! Gordon filled me in on what happened to Wavewalker and is writing another book, a sequel to Schooner to the Southern Ocean, with the ongoing adventures after leaving HI. Should be published soon, I don't remember the name, however.

Judy

Re: What Happened to s/v Wavewalker ?

Hi, this is Sue. I grew up on Wavewalker for 10 years from 1976-1986 and am now writing about that experience. If you sailed on Wavewalker I would love to hear from you. Please do contact me through www.wavewalker.co.uk.
