Captain Timmy points us in the right direction
Michael Funke was without a
doubt the best "galley commander"
a crew could ever ask for.
Terry Clark, with his years of nautical
experience, kept us alert and informed. There
was never a dull moment with Terry. Heated
intellectual conversations were a nightly ritual.
Tim Ashe keeps an eye out in the
Mid-Atlantic for tankers. He is a
"Natural" offshore. Tim's sailing
abilities were surpassed by none.
