I think it was in the summer of 1962 we were enroute from Kuwait to Marsaille when we ran aground going between Corsica and Sardinia. We continued on to France and then returned to Valetta Malta for dry dock.
Another time we were Southbound from Portland Maine to Puerto La Cruz Venezula and came upon the U.S. Navy blockade of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
We were also in Nigeria when the Biafrian war was about to break out so we were sent to Las Palmas to await further orders.
I was on the Rincon Hills for a year and a half and was then transferred to the Emerillon where I spent another eight years until I married and took a job ashore.
My time sailing was a wonderful time and I often wonder what has become of the many friends and characters I spent those years with.
