The second to last photo here is the ‘iconic’ painting named by Robin, “Roaring Forties“, [a copies few left from my web site, signed prints on canvas].
You can read about this painting in the May 2019 Yachting Monthly, out now as I write for you.
The final photo in this series; see if you can spot ‘Suhaili’ snugly moored in Falmouth Harbour, 22 April 2019.
