Re: Wombat returns .... tale follows ...

Andrew old friend, you've done well if you've managed to get through Conrad's 'Lord Jim' and 'Heart of Darkness' in the time you were away. Heavy going, that is.

Have you read Slocum's 'Alone Around The World' lately?!? That's good for long-distance cruising inspiration (so are Mrs Brassey's books - but they're in a different class altogether).
