Peter Mueller of Cambridge, GBR asks:
Goodness me, first a Frenchman from Cheshire and now a German
using (or should that be 'abusing'?!) the beautiful French language. This
is just to thank you, like so many others, for sharing your wonderful
experiences with us. I came across Nordhavn by chance when summer weather
and a boating magazine my father sent to me rekindled my love of boats. Ever
since, I have been following the latest developments, the progress of Ken
and Roberta Williams's 68, and now your epic voyage.
Only a few weeks ago I was privileged to come on board a 40/II at the
Southampton Boat Show by courtesy of Philip Roach, the representative for
Europe. Now it is clear that they truly stand out from the rest.
Lots of fun, good luck and calm seas,
Scott Flanders of Egret responds:
Peter, thank you for your encouragement to the Egret crew. We're not sure
about this being an "epic" voyage. Egret is simply following in the big
footsteps of others. What it is to the Egret crew is a challenging voyage
of personal discovery. It is great fun for us to write about things to help
and entertain others plus it makes the watch fly by.
You are right about the Ken and Roberta Williams' new Nordhavn 68. They
will have a very special boat. The Nordhavn folks build what we call 'the
real deal', Egret's highest honor.
