“David Lewis was the most wonderfully fantastic scallywag I have ever met. His love for the ocean can only be balanced by the love of beautiful women for him” (Dick Smith). David Lewis – sailor, doctor, womanizer, anthropologist, and author – was born in England, raised in Rarotonga, but “always called himself a New Zealander.” He achieved fame in the late 1960s for learning first-hand the traditional navigation techniques of Pacific islanders, which had long been a mystery to European sailors.
