Anyone on the site who was on Engadine's "famous" trip to the USA and Canada in 1973/74. Sam Dunlop was Master, Stan Pilling Chief, Nick Ball, 3rd Eng. I was the Lecky.

You appear to have drawn a blank - a pity because it obviously left you with memories, and no wonder with names like that in play ! Two eventual Commodores in there - Sam of course, and Nick who was Commodore (E) for a long time, retiring about ten years ago. Sadly the first two crossed the bar some years ago - Sam's passing was noted in the Telegraph, and still worth a read if you did not see it at the time http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/2581224/Commodore-Black-Sam-Dunlop.html
