Sailed on the Northern Gift GY704 September 1971. (photos in the gallery) Wrote a poem whilst off Iceland:

Oh what is it about the sea?
How I wish it were certain to me.
Is it the waves with their bubbling white tops?
Or is it the fact that it never ends - never stops.
Perhaps itís the power it looks to possess,
Or so itís actions seem to express.
One moment so calm like beauty just born,
The next with the wind gives fear for a storm.
With its groans and its grinds that puzzle great minds,
Itís supplies of fish to frequent our dish,
Such marvels so bold I suppose it will hold,
Still secret from me the truth of the sea.
