Les Weatheritt is a research economist who has been trying to get back to the Caribbean since he was a deck-hand on a schooner there at the age of 21. In 1985 he bought Petronella with the intention of trying an ocean voyage. He aborted his trip to the Azores that year after problems and spent the next decade sailing between Scandinavia and Spain. In 1994/5 he sailed the Atlantic with a crew. Petronella is still in the Caribbean and he is in no hurry to sail her back.Review:
