John B. Goulandris emanated from the Island of Andros, one of the biggest in the Cyclades. His career in the family shipping activities was one of the most admirable ones. A great benefactor for the Andriots he was also a great sailor. He loved sailing and lunched the Andros Sailing Race back in 1967. Big John as he was known will remain in the Pantheon, not only of the Andriots Shipowners but that of Planet Ocean too! He will be greatly missed.
