The news reports on the tragic death of Colin Craig on Yacht "Deja Vu" off the coast of Queensland Australia contained a few important inaccuracies ; To set the record straight :- Both Colin and his wife Glyn were both very experienced sailors. Colin was a former Commodore of the Zululand Yacht Club - one of the finest in Africa.
Colin and Glyn on Deja Vu won many international yacht races, including the Capetown to Rio, The Borneo cup, The Vasco de Gama down the South African Coast - just to name a few. Colin was a Radio Amateur - his call sign ZS5ABT - now silent.
I have had emails from Cruisers from all over the world asking for information and registering their sadness and empathy for Glyn. Among them Columbus, Cetacean II, Wanderlust, Katrine, Reflections IV, Senta, Elpedia,
Glyn is together with "Deja Vu" in Bundaberg - they had left the Solomon Islands a few days ago to visit Australia for the second time. I have asked former yachties in Bundaberg off the yacht "Ginseng" to make contact with her.
I shall miss Colin very much, a great sailor. Glyn I am thinking of you.
