Ross and Judy Muir, now in Queensland have a son Jason and daughter Danielle, both keen sailors. Jason and his crew, Dominic White, were recently voted Queensland's Junior Yachtsmen of the Year. Greg and Sue Muir, of Hobart, have two keen sailor sons, Tim and Ben and a younger daughter Lucy who is keen to start sailing. Jock describes it as a "good feeling" to see yet another generation of Muirs take to the water: "I really feel it is something that I've been able to pass on. I haven't taught my grandchildren much, but I did teach my sons and they have taught them - it is very gratiffing." Maritime Reflections has meant much reminiscing for Jock and Mollie: "It has taken me back so vividly - sometimes I have been out there again. "I think what I have loved most about the sea, is that being out there, one always appreciates the miracle of nature. It is something that one cannot describe unless you experience it but you really marvel at what has been created. A true sailor has to be a bit of a philosopher I think. A love of the sea cuts right across background, even race, it is a wonderful bond." Jock says life has been an interesting experience and he has achieved what he set out to do - and "more besides." He has quiet praise for his wife who, he says; "let him go to sea." For Mollie's part she says boats and the sea have enriched their marriage: "We have certainly made some wonderful friends. I knew from the beginning that the sea would be part of our lives. I have always reckoned there is something out there in the ocean that draws them - people on land just have to accept that."
