If you haven’t already read Ian’s story, we recommend you read this first: https://sailing-lavagabonde.com/a-yacht-called-cynthia/
It’s an inspiring story which you don’t come across too often. After reading Ians email in response to the winning patron call out we smiled, laughed, cried and took the time to really appreciate what we have.
It was great to be able to revisit this story whilst we were in Australia and finally see Cynthia back on the water again with the family. Thank you so much for your support Ian and for the courage to share your tale with us. Also a huge thanks to Andrew (his son), for helping us co-ordinate the surprise and working with us on getting together some footage for this little doco.
We are so happy to see Cynthia back in the water and looking so beautiful. Fair winds and following seas, hopefully see you out there on the water someday.
