Harold & Kwailan La Borde

Trinidadians Harold and Kwailan received the OCC Award in recognition of their many years spent world cruising in a succession of home-built yachts named HUMMINGBIRD, from 27ft HUMMINGBIRD in 1959 to HUMMINGBIRD III, a 55ft wooden ketch. They were praised for cruising in the best traditions of the OCC, without fuss and making many friends along the way. An article about the La Bordes written by Hugh Cownie appeared in Flying Fish 1995/1.
