During their brief sailing cruise in Turkey, SeaKnots founders Andrea and Franc met up with member Stephen Phillips. Stephen has been cruising on his catamaran Gone Troppo for years even after having been attacked by pirates; an encounter that was featured in Klaus Hympendahl's book "Pirates Aboard". When Andrea and Franc learned that Stephen had not yet had a chance to read his story in the book, they pulled it off their shelf and brought it with them on their trip. They figured that at some point they'd be in the same area and sure enough, they were able get together in Marmaris last week. Never having met before, they all thank SeaKnots for making that encounter possible.
