    Been ill for weeks, slowly recovering but left weak and in a non coping frame of mind! Also the lure of the grandchildren is calling. Tony and sally

    Hi Annie, thanks for those kind words. We love RON GLAS, and as you know, have spent 8 years sailing Ron to places he has never been. He is a very different boat to the one we found in Inverness.. as he deserves and we have spent the time upgrading him to a comfortable voyager and home. I just hope he finds a good new custodian. Lots of love Sally and Tony x

    Definitely my dream ship. I can understand the pull of the grandkids though, sadly most of mine are in the US.

    Gosh - that all sounds rather more exciting than you signed on for!  But at least you made it.  I hope you soon find someone to take over Ron Glas.  People seem to like bigger boats, these days, but then, the boat is hardly in a Solent marina!

    Hello,

    That sounds like a 'busy' trip.  I bet you are glad to be still.  I have been contacted by a gentleman named Hans-Erik, who seems very interested in Ron Glas but has not been able to get hold of you.

    He sent an email a while back, so asks that you look out for it in what I guess is a busy inbox.  I also have phone number and email details that I can send on if needed.

    Mark
