Yesterday my company treated us to an afternoon aboard Schooner Eros–a 100+ foot sailboat with some pretty impressive history:
Schooner EROS is a classic beauty built in England 1939 for the daughter and son-in-law of a British Lord. She was very soon commandeered by the Royal Navy to participate in the famous evacuation at Dunkirk. After the war she became the private yacht of the first man internationally known as a billionaire, Stavros Niarchos, and she became well-known in the Mediterranean yachting community.
We all remember Stavros Niarchos (yes?). The sun came out and the wind was blowing; it was a perfect day.
