Goodbye Rowland – We will miss you

Saturday, June 17, 2017

Rowland Leaves us:

Rowland

Time to say goodbye to Rowland.  He has another commitment and despite my best pleading, tears and outright groveling, his integrity would not allow him to renege on that obligation.  Darn integrity- -gets you every time.

Before we move on, I must pay tribute to Rowland.  Prior to meeting him, everyone we contacted that knew him said he was a great guy and very experienced captain/sailor.  While that is true, to get to know him is to really appreciate him.   Over the past month we learned so much about Rowland:

I could go on and on.

We miss having him around already.  He came aboard as our contract captain and he left as our friend (I have to admit I am shedding a few tears as I write this).

May we sail again together in the future is our hope.
