    You sound like a person that likes the last word and happy that Robin had a few problems, why? Because he didn't listen to a few knowitalls? The crew that Robin had assembled was more than enough to cope with anything that came up and so it was proved, Griff has spent years at sea as he has told us. yes Robin had a wobbler, the decision was to put him ashore, they could've tied up there and waited but they chose not to, they had the expierience to make that call. no one was harmed, the boat delivered, I think that's the problem you've got and fwiw I think it's a bitter and twisted mind jealousy gets you nowhere apologies if I've upset anyone else rant over

    Good post and very true. Robin, anyone that's treats an affable guy like you badly is just jealous, simple as that and not worth the time of day, leave them to rot in their own sad self indulgent lives. The amount of people that subscribe to the captains blog must speak volumes. The amount of new posters that signed up because you were sharing a story with a new boat and crew moving a boat halfway round Britain also says something. Your a personality Robin and a likeable one at that. now get that captains head on and start enjoying yourself again, were are all behind you 100% sermon over

    Chris although we've never met, yet!! Who knows, you two were obviously a very strong couple together with your lovely boat. remember all the good times, I'm sure there were very many, i wish you every success and happiness in whatever you choose to do
