Island hopping in the Bahamas, basking in the sun, and lolling on the various beaches
sounds llke anybody's dreambut Jack Pirie., 4028 W. 106th
pl., made it come true., although it was more llke a nightmare. His !Dlo adventure began
7-20 -\9.1
at Marsh Harbor in the Grand
Bahamas when he picked up a
27-foot rented sailboat (three
sails), 15 gallons of water, a
supply of canned goods, and half
an hour of instruction from the
boat's owner.
His previous
saillng experience had taken
place over a four-year span
in a single sail, 14-foot porpoise at Sister's Lake, Mich.
Feeling very much like Burt
Lancaster in his sporty yachting cap, he set sail for his first
port, May of War Cry.
There, seasoned yachtsmen
lined the dock as he made his
first landing, getting knocked
lnto the pit as three tons of
sail descented on top of him.
He kept the group entertained
with his next maneuver - mistakenly unplugging the dinghy
and sinking with it to the bottom of the harbor. The other
islands visited were., for the
most part, uninhabited - Cotland Cay, Great Guana, Gumelmi, Wh a I e., Treasure, and
Green turtle. It was on the
latter that he spent his one
night on terra firma, and as
the only motel guest, was treated to a special showing of
"Sinking of the Bismarck",
projected on a sheet between
two trees.
He managed to get his boat
hung up on a reef for a day
and a half, cut his foot on a
sharp shell, ride into a gale
which tipped him to a 70 degree angle., and to just miss
being engulfed by a seche. On
the plus side., however, were
hours of skin diving, collecting elegant rocks and shells,
swimming with a school of
angel fish, and seeing strange
and beautiful flora and fauna
in the tripical jungles. He arrived back at O'Hare in a pair
of shorts, cap perched rakishly on his head, three straw
bags dangllng from one arm,
skinnier than when he left,
sunburned, extremely tired,
but a happier man for having a
dream come true.

Not mentioned in the many
stories about the United States
Junior Wrestling team is the
lady who played "Mom" to the
20 strapping young men between
the ages of 15 and 18 on their
recent European trip. Coach
C.-aig's wife, Connie, had that
unique privilege and found that
being with such a group was a
distinct advantage in that they
did not follow the typical tour1st path. The Craigs, who live at
5110 W !lOth st., had exactly
one week to prepare for the
jaunt and that week was the one
1n which Jim had to take two
summer school finals.
The wrestling meets were
held in Germany where the entourage traveled from Frankfort to Ludwigshafen on the
Rhine river, with a side trip to
Mannheim and its chemical factory; to Heidelberg and its
charming shops; to Stuttgart
and the Merecedes Benz plant;
Munich, where everyone
spent their Yankee dollars; to
the beautiful Bavarian Alps,
and the towns of Gruenwald,
Chiemsee, and Ebersbach. Elegant castles were sprinkled
over the countryside, and flowers bloomed in profusion around the attractive German
Not so cheerful or pictureesque was the scene behind the
Iron Curtain in Bucharest, Rumania, where the senior division of the World Greco - Roman championship was taking
place. There, the Craigs went
sightseeing in a Russian limousine, saw the farmingcommunals, and many sad-faced people
who barely spoke to each other.
It was quite a contrast. On the
way home, they stayed overnight in Berlin, and during a
brief lay -over in London, visited the town of Windsor. They
hope to return in 1972 when the
World Olympics will be held in
Munich, where preparations
are already underway for the
big event.
Bill Vail, the Hometown hero who made the trip possible,
had been coached by Craig all
during his four years as a stud-
ent at Oak Lawn Community
high school. In his spare time,
the coach manages the tornado trailer park, and is in the
process of editing the 400 slides
he brought back for a public
showing at a later date.
