This Show is dedicated to my brother Jack Bassett who took eight years to build his 27 ft sailboat , sailed to South Europe and is currently homeward bound in the South Atlantic with his first mate Carolyn Shubert. This show is a tribute to Jack’s craftmanship, their pluck , courage and sense of adventure on the high seas and my passionate wish for fair winds and God-speed home.
