Sea History 143 - Summer 2013

Page 9

Romance of a Life at Sea Love Sea History magazine! Interesting, fasci nating, and educational articles. It is appropriate that I am renewing my subscription whi le sitting on a yacht in Nuku Hiva, Marquesas (delivery from Gloucester, Massachusetts, to New Zealand). I first visited here as a crewman on the Brigantine Romance, under command of Arthur and G loria Kimberly, on the 1975 - 77 circumnavigation. That voyage started me on my way to a career at sea: crewing on Pride of Baltimore, the schooner Lindo, Art hur Holgate's schooner Antares (for her 1983-85 circumnavigation), and then on into private yachts-but no powerboats, still sailing! I sti ll enjoy reading about the histories from the square- rigger days, but I have gotten used to the hot showers, chef-prepared meals, and no more 2AM "alofr and stowsquall line coming!" calls to duty! I look forward to reading more Sea History whe n I get back to Key West. Thank yo u for a great magazine. Bos WALLACE writing from Nuku Hiva, Marquesas
