LW45 MUSKAT owner, Nils, has just returned from Louisiades. He ran into a nasty weather system on their return but otherwise had an incredible cruise.
Nils is a surgeon and participated in an organised charity rally a couple of years ago to Vanuatu were they visited to provide aid and distribute donations. This time Nils organised a cruise himself, taking other doctors on board with him.
How awesome is that to combine your passion and skill and contribute to the wellbeing of the human race!
Whilst he was there, Nils met a local who was familiar with Lightwaves, as another LW owner had visited there a couple of years ago and had claimed his hut as ‘Rob’s Yacht Club’. Rob gave them books to start an exchange program with other yachties – a book swap. Rob sends supplies and books up there annually. So Nils bought some gifts back to pass onto Rob, from the locals at Louisiades! To have familiarity in such a remote destination, is amazing. Our Lightwave owners comment, its the people you meet when cruising that makes it extraordinary…
