Pierre La Borde yesterday described
his father Harold as a man who was
"self-taught, self-made, an adventurer,
film-maker and boatbuilder."
Harold, a yachting pioneer and recip-
ient of the Trinity Cross (Gold), died
in Grenada on June 12. He was the first
local to travel around the world.
Pierre said this yesterday during his
father s funeral service which was held
at St Finbar s RC Church, Morne Coco
Road in Diego Martin. The body was
laid to rest at the Mucurapo Cemetery.
In his eulogy Pierre spoke of the
many adventures his father experienced
sailing to distant islands around the
Pierre said his father was suspected
to have accidentally slipped and fallen
at the marina, hitting his head, while
vacationing in Grenada.
Pierre said they sailed up to Grenada
in May and were going to sail back to
Trinidad to spend time with friends.
"We believe he slipped and fell going
down to the docks, and hit his head
and was unconscious and took his last
three breaths in the sea."
La Borde, who would have turned 83
last week Saturday, wrote three books
about his world travels, including aboard
the Humming Bird II which was used
in his first around-the-world voyage.
The sailing boat is still at the museum
in downtown Port-of-Spain, Pierre said.
Pierre said the plans by governments
"never came to fruition but I hope it
"He never liked flying. The Coast
Guard escorted the body from Grenada
to Chaguaramas (Staubles Bay) and
brought it on the pier. We are not here
to mourn. We are here to celebrate his
life. He never let societal norms hold
him back. He did what he wanted,"
Pierre described their journeys
through the years, braving "storms and
winds as strong as 30 knots, and I am
a better person."
The homily was delivered by Father
Fortune described La Borde as a
"humble, peaceful, quiet man who liked
simple things, who had beautiful
He said La Borde did his best and
every moment of his life he showed
people how to live.
Also attending the funeral service
were President Anthony Carmona, for-
mer chairman of the Integrity Com-
mission Ken Gordon and Zalayhar Has-
a humble man
