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.
