Cruiser Survives Mumbai Terrorism

From today's 'Lectronic Latitude, comes word that a cruiser who had just completed the recent Baja Ha-Ha was among those caught up in the vicious terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

"For Manjula Dean, a veteran of the recent Ha-Ha, it was a swift change from a relaxing cruise in Mexico to fighting for her life in a terrorist battleground on the other side of the world.

"A week ago Saturday, we were having sundowners aboard Greg Dorland and Debbie Macrorie's Lake Tahoe-based Cantana 52 Escapade at the Nayarit Riviera Marina in La Cruz. The other guests were Steve May and his ladyfriend Manjula of the Emery Cove-based Farrier 41 cat Endless Summer. All of us had done the Ha-Ha, and were talking about upcoming plans.

"Manjula, who had spent time in an ashram in India many years before, told us she was leaving for India a day later to lead a meditation class and do some business. She would return to Endless Summer shortly after Christmas."
