‘Captain Bob was born and raised in Long Beach, NY. He is a graduate of Harvard College and N.Y.U. Law School. He practiced law privately for twenty-three years and became an Assistant Attorney General in St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. and an Assistant Attorney Corporation Counsel in Washington, D.C. He has been an avid sailor since his early teens. He lived aboard his beloved Dulcinea for twenty years in Northport, L.I. and St. Thomas. He sailed extensively on Long Island Sound and the Caribbean.’
After writing his biography, Captain Bob decided to write a fictional journey of sailing into the Bermuda Triangle. As everyone knows, the Bermuda Triangle is an area of ocean bounded by Bermuda, Miami, and Puerto Rico. Even though there have been many mysterious disappearances of ships and planes in this water area, scientists and meteorologists have decided that these catastrophes are all caused by anomalies in the magnetic field surrounding the earth. What happens to these missing vehicles? No one really knows.
In Captain Bob’s story, he will encounter a thick gassy fog which has destroyed all but one passenger on the freighter The Albatross. He and his crew will outlast a storm, fight pirates and end up finding the island of Atlantis.
As the story proceeds, with Captain Bob and crew continuing on through the Virgin Islands, I come to the conclusion that Robert Stockel is clearly a man who not only knows sailing but through his description of the islands are so vivid that you could close your eyes and see them for yourself.
