Hey Roy, I know this is old technology and for a variety of reasons, we can't update it for the moment. However, instead of trying to bother with URLs when you select 'quick reply', try selecting 'go advanced', then you will see at the head of the text field a much enlarged menu. Spot the paperclip and then, off you go. Hope this helps.

Sadly it is clearly, more than obvious that Eddie was lost at sea somewhere in between South Africa and Australia, 7 years ago in 2013.. but even so, I still keep an eye on various web sites and internet news pages, with a vague hope that someone will turn up something, even just a piece of the boat.. or some identifiable item, just to put a lid on it all.
I hope that you can link your photos to this thread, I shall be interested to see them. I'll check in again in the next few days, to see if they are here.
Best wishes.. and thanks again for your message.


He was crosseing very unpredictable seas. Sad, our loss......... but Eddie?......,likely in sailors heaven no longer encumberned with lifes demands on course to a paradise only he can imagine. God rest his soul

I took your advice and via that found another route to up load the two images that I have held since Ed left our shores.

I seem to remember more, possibly of the boat and not with Ed in them, I will do a file search and see what I find?

Regards

Roy

This is one of a number of similar images that I took of the Sprit of Rema as she was such a well turned out vessel.

Thank you Roy for uploading the photos.
I shall alert the others of 'the scout gang' that they are there, so that they can view them too.
My husband and I spent a few days with Eddie when he was berthed in Vigo, Northern Spain, before he headed off back towards NZ, and I am so pleased to be able to say that he allowed me to take the helm (for a short while!) of his beloved and beautiful boat during one of our days out. Not having sailed, at that point, for some years, you can imagine that I was very nervous of being in charge of what was effectively Eddies home. Fortunately, like riding a bike, it seems you never really lose the knowledge of what to do!
So nice to 'replay' the memories.. safe sailing everyone.

Thanks for your comment.

I took pictures of Spirit of Rema in two lots, the two with Eddie in them are the second set.

This far and excepting the bow image I have not located the first set, when did Eddie arrive in Hout Bay, If I had that as a date I can work from around that time in my picture folders for the rest of the images?

Rover Crew 07-07-2020 03:54 PM

Hello Roy,
According to my records from the search for him, Eddie arrived in Hout Bay around the end of January 2012. Certainly he was in Hout Bay during the first week of February of that year. Hope that helps!

RoyMcBride 09-28-2020 12:41 PM

I have already posted about Ed and Sprit of Rema, with some pictures also, I have just found another picture showing the Q flag so he had just arrived at Hout Bay.

The date I took the picture was 2012 January 31st

I would post the picture here but the links above want a URL, the file is in my Documents folder.
