K is for Kiwi Spirit

The Saturday after Thanksgiving Jeff and I ventured up to St Augustine to meet and wish bon voyage to an inspiration in the sailing world. Dr. Stanley Paris is a 76 year old global green sailor sailing single handed around the world. He’s now been alone at sea for three weeks and intends to break several world records:  150 day, 6 hour record, as well as to become the oldest person and the first ever green circumnavigation!

The 63 foot Kiwi Spirit is a gorgeous sailing vessel designed by Stanley for this trip. Seeing her up close was an awe inspiring occasion.  You can follow his updates of his journey at http://stanleyparis.blogspot.com/    There’s a good article and video here and since technology is incredibly amazing you can track his progress via Yellowbrick! Fair winds, Stanley!
