St Helena lies 1000 miles west of Africa and 1600 miles east of South America, probably not the place to have a little romance, or maybe it is! I was a local teacher in training and Hannah visiting for 8 months through a church organisation.
We again met up in England, the first time as I was passing through after delivering a 12 metre yacht 4000 nautical miles from St Helena to Tortola in the Caribbean which took 31 days non stop and then a 1800 mile delivery from Washington DC down the Chesapeake river to Saint Martins, also in the Caribbean on a 23 metre yacht. I then flew to Europe to met Hannah, but whilst I was transiting to Capetown (South Africa) for a yacht regatta. I then returned to Europe to spend Christmas with Hannah and here I am, 15 years later with three beautiful children and a life style to die for. We've tried the house thing but sailing is far better, for us and the kids!
