John Glennie To Speak For Nina Sailors


The Adventures of John Glennie and the yacht Highlight

John Glennie knew he was going to survive being stranded at sea, yet he didn't tell his other 3 crew mates.  They would not have believed him if he had told them, Glennie says.

"Would someone believe you if you told them you knew how to drive a car? (But had never driven one before?)."  "No one would believe you."  Somehow, Glennie knew he would not only survive being stranded 118 days at sea, but thrive from the experience.

The rough paths various yacht have taken after disaster at sea

It is adversity in life which makes great people, Glennie says.  But for the adversity, ordinary people never gain their full potential.  Clearly, being the longest living survivor in a cold climate on a small craft stranded at sea gives Glennie credibility.

Subsequently, Glennie wrote a book titled The Spirit Of The Rose Noelle,, 119 Days Adrift.  A feature film was made about Glennie's adventure called Return From The Dead, the Story of the Rose Noelle.

Glennie is in Houston, Texas, for a press conference and fund raiser in support of the families searching for the lost yacht Nina, a 1928 schooner which disappeared in the Tasman Sea between New Zealand and Australia.  The press conference will be held Thursday, August 22nd, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.  Supporters will hold a fund raiser on August 23rd from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.  The public is invited to both events.  Both events will be held at the South Shore Harbor and Conference Center, 2500 South Shore Boulevard, League City, Texas.
