32 Yrs At Sea

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 22 March 2013

When Elise Gagnon and Frank Catton first set off in their 9 point 8 metre yacht from Vancouver Canada, Robert Muldoon was the Prime Minister, East German troops patrolled the Berlin Wall no one had heard of personal computers or cell phones, and petrol was about 60 cents a litre. That was in 1979. Since then, they've been to 52 countries, 370 ports and now they're returned to Nelson for the second time.
