    A Change Of Plans

    Things change, and sometimes in ways unimaginable just days or weeks before our long, hard planned efforts come to fruition. Such is the case with Michael Reppy and Dolphin Spirit. whose two part record attempt on the SF to Japan record attempt. The window of opportunity had just began to open for the correct conditions to depart SF in the next few weeks. That was before the devastating 9.0 earthquake and sub-sequential tsunami in Japan. Here is Michael s latest press release: ...

  • Annals of Worthy Wetass-edness: Solo Sailing to Save the Dolphins

    Annals of Worthy Wetass-edness: Solo Sailing to Save the Dolphins

    by Tim Zimmermann You have to admire California-based solo sailor Michael Reppy, now in his 60s. He wants two things in life: first, to set the singlehanded transpacific record from San Francisco to Tokyo; and second, to help stop the Japanese drive fisheries (made notorious by the film, "The Cove" ) that slaughter thousands of dolphins every year. Lots of would-be record-setters link (sometime in the most casual of ways) their attempts to environmental causes, but Reppy has been singular...

No siree-bob , we are talking old school, hoofing the big aluminum bin on the back , full and heavy, all morning...

  • This ones for you Joel Verutti.

    This ones for you Joel Verutti.

    Sailboat racing, at times, can lack the human element. Sailors are out there on a boat as part of a crew. When questioned at the yacht club the standard response will be Dave, on Adios or Lisa, on E9. Rarely does the sailing scene get personal - last names are sometimes never heard. “What do you do?” questions are responded to with one word answers “Bow,” “Trim,” “Drive.” Not “I drive a dump truck” or “I’m a podiatrist.” Yet there is a time when Sailing is the huma...

    by Photoboy


    Kahla Preston writes for Honey.nine.com.au Children often develop intense fixations, and for a young Sally Fitzgibbons it was the Olympic Games. From age five, she would imagine herself in Rocky-style movie montages as she threw herself into various sports. The "weird infatuation" was only cemented when she saw Cathy Freeman win gold at Sydney 2000. "Every time I'd finish running around the block or riding my BMX, I'd be like, 'Coming down the home straight, she's gonna...
