A good friend of mine (Henry) sailed on Canvasback after he retired. He was an eye surgeon, and he sailed with them in the Marshall Islands
. He knew absolutely nothing about sailing.
His first night on board while still in jet lag, he was given the job of steering
the catamaran all night long. They stood him up behind the wheel
, gave him a compass
course, and told him to steer the course and the crew disappeared down below. Needless to say, Henry was more than a little surprised to be steering
a seventy foot catamaran in the darkness offshore
It was a rather austere experience for Henry. He ending up losing 30 pounds on the voyage, but he had a great time visiting the islands and checking people's eyes.
Henry was one tough dude. He landed in Guadalcanal in World War II, and lost
lots of friends in the ensuing battle. Fortunately, Henry was endowned with a fearless nature and seemed to have a good dose of luck in all his adventures. I worked with him in Saudi Arabia when he was 74 years old, and he was still practicing medicine full time. When the Scud missles were coming down in Riyadh, Henry and I would be sitting in chairs out in the front of our villas waiting for the air raid sirens to sound warning of incoming scuds, and then we would head
for our safe rooms (which really were not that safe). Henry was fearless.
