Thank you to Millie Robbins for Chronicling the History of The World’s Sexiest Yacht.

        Isn’t that terrific, Tina. All credit belongs to Miriam Figueras at Cine Gratia Cinema, who did this fabulous tribute to Cruise of the Zaca:…

          Thanks Tim for this inside! I love the title:
          “Our love for the movies will last until the stars turn cold”
          How poetic can one get – just great – love it!

            So poetic of you to notice and praise, Tina.

            And how about Errol’s own, very moving poetic sentiments and talents ..

            “Like a bird with great wings, the movement of a sailing ship is the poetry of motion”

            It’s such a beautiful, insightful, and marvelously crafted article. She really recognized the true and uniquely tremendous greatness of Errol’s too often unheralded masterpiece, the magnificent Cruise of the Zaca.

            Thank you, Tina, and Thank you, Miriam.

            Sail on, Errol.

    Hi Tim;
    Is this a quiz? What are the clues?

      No, just photos of the World’s Sexiest Yacht, Tina.

      You want a quiz. Okay, I got a good one. Please stand by. A real Flynnian mystery, to be solved through a quiz!

    There’s a lot more going on at Guadalupe island these days then when Errol sailed! I won’t go into that, however my friends sail the same reckoned path to Panama and stay in La Paz most of the winter on their 36′ junk rig sailboat.
    I love those old photos of Errol and the gang having fun in youthful times. Nora was terribly attractive and young!

      Always love and look forward to receiving your nautical knowledge and insight, timerider!

      I can’t speak with any authority about sailing the waters of Mexico, nor Panama, but can authoritatively weigh in to agree wth you that Nora was adorable.

      Here are some of that youthful gang you mentioned having fun with Errol. Ah, those were the good old days.
