Hi All, A momentous occaision is almost upon us. On Thursday, Rob Legg turns 75! Please leave your greetings and tributes to Rob. He certainly deserves them. I'll be first off!
What can be said about Rob Legg? In the short time I have known him, I continue to be amazed with the accomplishments of his lifetime. Over a period of 40 years Rob has built over 4000 boats, many being designed by himself. Throughout his life Rob has displayed a mindset of innovation, and a steadfastness to achieve. The combination of his vision and doggedness, have at times resulted in him being enveloped in controversy. Such is the sign of a true visionary. But yet, I must add that I am amazed by how humble Rob is, and how sharp a mind he has.
These thoughts I have gained through working with Rob to help publish his memoirs. This project is a wonderful experience for me (it took 3 months of badgering Rob to get him on board) I hope to have an ongoing friendship with Rob, and hope you all enjoy reading his story (when we finally get it published!)
Finally, on a personal note I'd like to thank Rob for building such great boats. My RL24 Kandyman Mk4, still competes well with new boats 15 years younger! And best of all it gives me great joy, and valuable time to de-stress.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ROB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
