one last climb
Cappa was the guy you always wanted as your ‘right hand man’ and a sailor of the highest caliber and standards. He completed over 25 transatlantics, 4 Hobarts, a couple of Fastnet and Bermuda Races, every Caribbean 600 and some 250k miles at sea. He was aboard for Playstation’s Miami-Newport record run and most recently on the bows of Shamrock V, Salperton IV, Athos and his final race with Swan 90 Nefertiti.
So, if you see a bloke with big ears and feet like waffles with a bunch of chicks hanging off him as he dances his own unique dance, it’s not Cappa; it’s an imitation.
Sail on brother. We’ll miss you always.
A small ceremony & big party will be held in Palma de Mallorca TOMORROW September 18 & again in Australia on September 27 at the Terrigal Surf Club.
