Days of Deja vu!

Anyone remember Jonathan Reid? He built a Hartley 28 in the 70s and sailed off from Simonstown in the 80s. Ended up in Hawaii after sailing much of the Pacific. He still lives in Hawaii - I have had some recent emails from him.

He has written a book called "Days of Deja Vu" - his boat's name. Its a great (true) tale of sailing, adventure, romance and growing-up all in one. It is a must for anyone interested in sailing adventures - I would describe it as a modern day version of Joshua Slocum's famous book - "Sailing Alone around the World", set a few decades later.
