What! I'm flummoxed by the title of this post. It's just utter nonsense, Joe! I know that you are dumbfounded, but some folks actually love to sail classics like the International 12 designed by George Cockshott. Imagine that?
After spending 6 years building a Dudley Dix designed sailboat in his driveway in Boulder, Bill Connor is ready to set sail. He and his son, Spencer, leave tomorrow for Connecticut. That's a long way to go for a splash test. Good luck!
Say goodbye to the Somali pirates revenue stream. I wonder if these technological wonders will have the capability to launch killer flying drones?
Coming soon to an ocean near you. Funny thing, in order to achieve crewless vessels, the eggheads are going to have to load these ships with miles of wires and a lot of electronics. Hello, corrosion! Talk about a moist robot. So good luck with that guys.
HUGO BOSS presents the third installment of their extreme sailing stunts - following the Mastwalk, and Keelwalk, witness the Skywalk by Alex Thomson. Yes, it's a bit silly, isn't it? But what the heck, fun is fun. On with the show.
With tuppence for paper and strings You can have your own set of wings With your feet on the ground You're a bird in a flight With your fist holding tight To the string of your kite
Oh, oh, oh! Let's go fly a kite Up to the highest height! Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring Up through the atmosphere Up where the air is clear Oh, let's go fly a kite!
"Everyone has his or her definition of what it means to be alive. For some, it's waking up in a big city, going to work, watching a soap opera, going to sleep... repeat, day after day. For me, that is the definition of being alive, not feeling alive. I demand more from life, I need to feel alive; and nothing makes me feel more alive than surfing. I have structured my life and sacrificed greatly in order to build my life around surfing. I don't believe in destiny, I believe that anyone, anywhere, has the ability to create the life they want to live. If I can do it, you can do it. So get out there and start living the life you want!"
