"To those at sea..."
the third toast
|Rowers lost at sea|
During one of my trips with
Peter Bird and Kenneth F Crutchlow we were in Russia obtaining official
permission from the city council of Vladivostok, Russia, for Peter to row from Vladivostok
to San Francisco. One of our hosts, Vladimir Maltsev, a former executive involved with
Russian shipping, would always offer the third toast at different gatherings we attended
with, " To those at sea..."
