Jeremy Walker replied to Allen Bosely's discussion Tell me about the Spirit Rig

Hi Jeremy Yup I met Hans in Tahiti and kept in contact till we got to NZ. I have assisted with his court matters and the irony is that he is now in Pietermaritzburg, 60kms up the road from Westville where I used to live. I visited him regularly while he was in Auckland. He has served enough time in Auckland to be eligible for parole time wise but has he was a fugitive from SA that may hold his application up for a while. Given how full SA prisons are and that he is a foreigner, I do not expect him to be in too long. I hope I am right!!

Dragon is now moored in Whitford, Auckland. I am thoroughly enjoying sailing around here!!

 

Cheers,

Dave

Hi Jeremy BTW speaking of WBHS, Shauna Eldridge is my wife and grew up in Wesville (I grew up in the Tvl) her sister Debbie and brother Brandon all went to school in the area. Steven Arendse is also a mate of the family.

 

Cheers,

Dave

Jeremy I checked your page after your very sensible contribution to "Anchors...." Have you details / photos of the shunting Pahi you mentioned ? You might post some details for us in the Small Pahi group ? I know there would be great interest.

Happy Sailing !!
