In the early eighties,I sailed with a second steward called joe (his second name fails me he was southern Irish) on the wild grebe,lovely man.
He recalled a time in the early seventies on the tekoa,the run was kiwi to Japan round trip.
He stayed on this run for 5 years without going home.
Am I dreaming this conversation or did it indeed happen.The spell was broken he said when the tekoa returned to the uk after 5 years.
I always thought what a bloody long trip.
