Palma.—He’s a modern day Robinson Crusoe – but now castaway Don Green is looking to the future after being reunited with his long-lost daughter.
The rag trader-turned-buccaneer “sailed off the edge of civilisation” 40 years ago to live alone in a tin shack in tropical paradise on Friday Island in the Torres Strait, between Australia and New Guinea.
But his daughter, 33-year-old fashion designer Fuchsia Quinn, who works part time a super yacht based here in Majorca, managed to track him to his remote island home – and healed “the biggest regret of his life”.
Up until now, after a difficult family break-up, the last time the marooned yachtie laid eyes on his daughter and only child was the day she was born in an Adelaide hospital on June 16, 1980.
