In 1995 we both did our first bigger sailing voyage, Bermuda to Brazil. I had to leave and David stayed on to Capetown. Later we met now and then in harbours, but never sailed together again. 'til this time.
I was still the voyage crew, but David suddenly turned out to be watch officer. There is only one excuse I have: My professional career is still "under construction" and needs maintenance, he successfully completed his and can proceed to the free.
Well done, David.
