    What a remarkable guy!

    He not only tackles a near impossible task, but is a fine writer and film maker!

    A very creative video.

    Wonderful video….it took four knots off my top speed. It takes more than money to live like that.

    In ’92 my family anchored right off that wharf. The kids were 5 and 8, and within seconds of hauling the dinghy up the beach, they were leaping from the jetty just as they continue to do. Our 5 days in Penrhyn were a joy and the kids were tearful to leave. Like every other island in our 5-year trip, we have longed to go back. Moments ago I sent this video to those two kids, now 37 and 40, and I’m sure they will share my longing to return. It’s a long sail from San Francisco to Penrhyn, but worth every second of time spent with family at sea. There is nothing like it.

      Fun/amazing story, Beau. Thanks for letting us all in on that. I wonder if your kids remember that?

    I wonder how many times Tom thought to turn around and head back to Penrhyn? Pretty idyllic.
