the knight who says ni

As the push to make yachting historian/journalist/sailor Bob Fisher a knight continues to gain steam, the man himself writes to correct a barbaric error on this front page about a sailor who did indeed become a “Sir.”  Writes Mr. Fisher:

At no time in the Golden Globe (and I’m old enough to have reported on that event) did Bernard Moitessier ever head RK-J.  He has even written that he had no chance of catching the leader, although, undoubtedly, he would have had a faster time and won the £5,000 prize for that, but the Golden Globe was for the first solo circumnavigation and that was Robin’s. -Fish

Our apologies to Sir Robin, and our utmost respect to a guy who features a whiskey sponsor on his website.  Nice one, and title inspiration of course to Monty Python.
