Five Oceans Race.

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

For those of you who haven’t heard, there is a grueling solo round the world race happening RIGHT NOW! This is also the most intense (exciting) part of the entire 30,000 nautical mile race, as they are racing around Cape Horn, some of the most dangerous water in the world. This is the longest “single-handed” event in the world, with the sailors clocking 3,000 hours alone at sea. The Canadian skipper, Derek Hatfield, is currently in 3rd place, but catching up on second place with less than 20 NM between them. He is the oldest contestant at 57 years old! Check it out!

They compete in 5 stages. They started on October 17th, 2010. With technology as it is, they keep up blogs in visual, auditory and written forms, with frequent updates as to their whereabouts. WOW!

Look at this Baby.

Volkmar!

I initially snapped a picture of this for Douglas Nagy because I knew he would be into it.

Too bad December 8th has already passed . . . anyone who goes by the name Volkmar . . . I want to be at their parties. All the best in 2011, Volkmar.

For those situations when you just can’t stick around.
