I've done web search but nothing new. I was wondering if he ever went back to sailing. For those who havent read his story, it is interesting to see how a 16 y/o could sail solo around the world in the 60s without all the high tech gear we have now.

Last I heard he and his family were on a ranch somewhere in Colorado, I believe, thoroughly landlubbing.

camaraderie is a jewel in the rough camaraderie is a jewel in the rough camaraderie is a jewel in the rough
From Amazon:
Some web sites on the internet have provided incorrect information about Patti and Robin Lee Graham who documented his circumnavigation at age 16 (1965-1970)in this book "Dove," as well as in three National Georgraphic issues, and a movie by Gregory Peck. Patti and Robin still live in Montana (documented in his second book, "Home is the Sailor") and are grandparents of two grand sons of Quimby and her husband. Their son Benjamin is recently married. The Grahams are in the construction business and continue to serve as a positive influence in the lives of young people through their writings and religious service to others. They are remarkable people and provide us all a remarkable story of courage, perserverance, hope and friendship. --Dick Stafford at dickstafford@alltel.net
