Cheers from Ascension Island

I've been shorebound for much too long but in the mid 70's I quit a job on Ascension island and sailed 2200 miles on a 26' ketch with Australian Laurie Piper to Fortaleza Brazil. ... I have seen several sightings of Laurie over the years .... anyone seen him lately ??

I've got my eye on a 51' steel atlantic ketch ... 3 more years of daydreaming and then off to the Pacific ...

glad to have found a cruisers forum ...
