 Cruisers’ Roll Call


There is a bond between sailors which arises from the shared highs and lows of sailing the world’s oceans and seas. The sailors we have met are resourceful, skillful, determined, and respectful of their environment and the people who inhabit the lands they visit. Many of these sailors have assisted the work of the Butterfly Trust and we would like to thank them all.
