Office work, and a talk for yachties
Loc: Chaguarama/ Trinidad
Acc: Michel and Nevine’s house
I taped my turtle crashed tent, fixed some poles and was online all day. For dinner I was invited to talk in front of Laurie’s yachting friends at a potluck barbecue in a sailing school. None of those sailors had made Cape Horn yet, but all were listening very interested to my experiences, even without showing slides. Graham and Russell were also there, and a bunch of other kayakers. A friendly evening!
And once more I found the world is small – I met Emma with her family living and sailing on a yacht, the daughter of well-known Swedish kayak designer and Greenland style paddler Björn Thomasson. I had built my skin on frame kayak after his “Black Pearl” design!
