Joy of Sailing

Was at the bar in Simpson Bay getting my daily dose of internet and struck up a conversation with an old Australian yacht delivery captain. We told stories for a while then he began to tell me about his most recent delivery.

He delivers Nautor Swan's almost exclusively. These boats are arguably the best mono hulls ever made.

The owner of one particular boat has had cancer for the last nine months and the outcome is certain. The doctors are all working to allow this gentlemen to have one last hooray. Chemo, radiation, other meds.... All timed to make him feel as well as possible for a brief amount of time. And of all the things he could do, places he could visit...

He just wants to go sailing with his family on the boat he loves. Hope this gents wish is granted!
