Bowman            I was taken under the wing of the late Berty Reid who found me a
                  position as a foredeck crew member onboard the Cape to Rio winning
                  mini maxi Warrior owned by Phil Gucci. I found myself really and truly
                  in the deep end as they say. It was there that I learnt to work as an
                  effective individual of a well formed and operating team. I was taught
                  the art of effective communication and precise response. We
                  competed in the Cape to Rio race and seated line honours and broke
                  the records of every single offshore race in South Africa. We also
                  competed in all the inshore regattas that would allow us to race.
