A message from the OCC Commodore to Bob and Elaine Hazell
Bob and Elaine,
What an amazing time you have had over the past six years, we have enjoyed following your progress. I'm sure Tony Venables would have been proud to think that his inspiration to buy and campaign Overlord resulted in two members of OCC becoming such intrepid sailors. Congratulations to you both - well done from all of your friends at the OCC.
Regards, Miggie Bruce
Bob and Elaine reply ... To receive such a public accolade has taken us completely by surprise! Our sincere thanks to the Commodore and the Club for their congratulations, and to the late Tony Venables for inspiring us. We feel immensely privileged as well as proud to have achieved a circumnavigation, to experience the challenges of long ocean passages tempered by gentle cruising in exotic places, as well as enjoying some land travel along the way. We hope our journey on Pipistrelle may inspire other members of the OCC to set sail for distant shores.
Bob and Elaine (May 16)
