Hector Heron

I sailed on Hector Heron 68-69 as 2/0 for a long 9 month stint but others had been on her longer!
We traded mainly PG to South Pacific to islands I had previously never even heard of!
Still recoving now!

She was faster than that and most trips averaged around 15 knots.
At the time not many tankers overtook us!
I recall several 17 knot days but perhaps it was 'downhill'
