 A Slow Boat to Anywhere

"The shipboard life of Royal Clipper, without casinos, nightclubs or a thousand other passengers, agreed with my friend Margaret and me. Instead of lavish entertainments, our captain, Klaus Mueller, held forth on the bridge with charismatic presence: on one evening recounting the era of giant windjammers, such as the Preussen of Germanyís Flying P line, which inspired Royal Clipper; on another, giving the most eloquent account of celestial navigation Iíve heard. Sunsets were an unearthly experience, for when the mood took him, Mueller shouldered the bagpipes of his adopted Scotland and played until twilight swallowed our bow."
