Hurricane Chris and the project.
As time passes I really believe that hurricane Chris rerouting me to Halifax brought only good things to this project.
Every place Witold sails into, every regatta we take part in brings more and more awareness and respect to Witold Pilecki, Jan Kozielewski/Jan Karski "Witold" and tens or hundreds thousands of Poles of many faiths saving, risking their lives and lives of their families, Poles of Jewish faith during World War II.
Everywhere we go there are people asking about those names. From Custom and Border Patrol to guys in Brooklyn approaching on jetskis, asking and learning of these heroes.
I felt bad when changing course from Plymouth to Halifax, but I know now - this is much better for the cause so far.
