Me at the helm of Christian Radich

Here I am at the helm of
Christian Radich on a cruise in the Oslo fjord. The uniform was borrowed from my brother in law that was a real first mate.
My dream is to take the same trip as the emigrants did to Australia, and do it on a ship. In 1984 I did fulfill my dream to go around the world, and by the help of Pan Am I did so in 50 days.
