Stanley Paris - 76 y.o. round the world attempt

I get interested in competitive round the world races - like the Volvo (formerly Whitbread), and Vendee Globe (single-handed, no outside assistance, non-stop).  But the oldest, the youngest, etc. don't catch my eye.  But Stanley Paris (who hopes to be the oldest) caught my eye.  His boat Kiwi Spirit was built at Lyman Morse, just across the river from Jeff's Marine, Thomaston, Maine where my power boat is maintained.
Paris - an endurance athlete (Ironman, etc.) can be followed at his blog.  Right now he is nearing Bermuda where the attempt (Bermuda - Bermuda) will start.Home
