I'd like to startup a page or pages on the Westsail Circumnavigators. It would be great to have the owners name, vessel name and the year/s of the trip/s.
If someone would like to read through the Windbags and Windblown to find circumnavigators to add to the list, please let me know as we could divide up the publications to spread the labor. mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a list from Bud Taplin to get us started.
Mike Johnson on W32 #257 Aissa - I have his story started on other pages.
Bob Tiews on W32 #51 Renaissance
Robert Packer on W32 #203 Gimli
Eric Forsyth on W42 #48 Fiona - http://www.yachtfiona.com/ and FB https://www.facebook.com/pages/Yacht-Fiona/124339573102 - Eric is the 1997 recipient of the SSCA Lifetime achievment award.
Bud adds "There is a W32 owner in the Bay Area that made an 18 month circumnavigation and came to a rendezvous the day he got back into the Bay. I don’t recall his name though. There is also a W42 owner that came to a Florida rendezvous and showed pictures of their circumnavigation, but I also don’t remember the name."
Jim and Jeanne Kenaston on W32 #657 Sabbatical 1979 - 1982 30,000 miles. Sabbatical now owned by Gary Baugh has been renamed to Betelgeuse. Jeanne has provided many great images of their trip and she has 2 online books at http://www.blurb.com/books/1828992 .
