Thank you, Captain, for bringing the Bounty back to her breathtaking glory and for sharing her with the world. All of us who stepped aboard and marveled at her beauty thank you for an incredible experience. May you and your family be proud of all that you accomplished and how many lives you touched.

AS a former crew member of the Bounty, I am heartbroken. God's peace, Robin.

Rest in Peace, Captain Robin. You and the Bounty will also be a part of our community.

I had the honor to meet Robin when he sailed the Suwannee Belle. I have thought of his sincere kindness he always showed, even while under duress. Our prayers go out to his family and his crew.

My deepest sympathy to you and your family during this sorrowful time, It was with great sadness that I heard of BOUNTY's fate. Robin taught me the basics of square-rigger sailing when I was preparing for command of USS CONSTITUTION ("Old Ironsides") in June 1999. He was a masterful teacher with deep respect for the sea and those who are drawn to maritime professions. It was an honor and privilege to have known Robin.

Captain Wlliam F. Foster, Jr., USN (Ret.)
66th in Command
"Old Ironsides"

Robin - many, many years ago, when you were a Mate on HMS Rose, you welcomed aboard a person whose prior 'sailing' experience, up to that point at least, had consisted of paddling a canoe and being a passenger on a ferry. You treated this excited, albeit nervous, new sail trainee with infinite patience, warmth, and kindness - always happy to share your knowledge of, and love for, sailing a square rigger. What a memorable foray into the world of sailing one of these beautiful tall ships that became for me; a voyage that, as a result of your generous encouragement, would prove to be the first of many such exciting tall ship sailing adventures that this person hailing from the landlocked Prairies would embark upon in future years. Thank you Robin, my friend; I will cherish those memories. You helped to instill in me a love of tall ship sailing that continues unabated to this day. Had hoped to get a chance to sail with you on the Bounty some day; sadly that will never happen now.

Robin, you once told me that every seagull embodies the soul of a perished sailor; sadly you joined their ranks much too soon. May your kind and gentle soul find peace as you sail the winds of the sky as you once sailed the waves of the seas.

My deepest sympathies to Robin's wife, Claudia, and to all of his family. The world has lost a warm and caring man, and one heck of a sailor.
