A sailing legend passes away at 87
Sadun Boro, the Turkish sailor, has passed away at the age of 87 while being treated for cancer in Marmaris.
Sadun and his wife Oda circumnavigated the globe in 1985 – 1988 in their 10.5m Atkin designed wooden double ender, the “Kısmet”. On board was also their cat “Miço”. At an age of no fax and internet they managed to send very frequent updates about their journey to Turkey, which were published weekly by the Turkish “Hürriyet” and were highly popular reading.
