I’ve just read an obituary of a most extraordinary man, Ted Rogers, who has passed away at 90 years.
Badly injured in wartime, he nevertheless managed to live a full life that included a lot of bricklaying, family life, campaigning against the evils of nuclear weapons, boatbuilding and sailing. I have considerable sympathy with his views, but there’s much to admire whatever your politics.
In particular, anyone who feels discouraged by the way the humdrum difficulties of life seem to make sailing impossible should take a moment to read the obituary in The Guardian and see his website. I’m only sorry I didn’t know him.
