Sadly, this is the point at which, for now at least, we say a fond farewell to Hector as he returns to UK and life ashore to commence the next stage of his academic studies. Suffice it to say, it has been immense fun and enormously fulfilling to sail with someone with such drive, commitment, passion, appetite to learn and sense of fun. It is always rewarding to sail with someone who absorbs information and experiences so voraciously and it has been an enormous privilege to learn from him too as, I hope, he has something of value from me along the way.
Publicly therefore, Hector, I am immensely grateful for everything you have done for Atlantis, Fiona and me throughout the summer. It goes without saying, we'll look forward to one day welcoming you back on board.
Atlantis' adventures will continue.
Well, we got here........what next?
