    Favourite Boat pic?

    Dinelli held onto that line/sheet for 24-hours before an Australian Aircraft managed to locate him and drop a life raft that he was able to climb into. 10-minutes later his boat sank! https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/how-we-met-pete-goss-and-raphael-dinelli-1262298.html

  6. The Original Score for COYOTE: The Mike Plant Story is now live on Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon.com and more! .. find links below. **Gifted** Composers, Jeff Victor and Tony Braasch, left an impressive and impactful mark on the film. We are proud of their work and thankful for the passion they brought to every note. Thank you Brack Herfurth and Grey Ghost Music for leading us to these talented and thoughtful artists! This is a screen shot from their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/coyotemovie/ The actual Documentary is slated to be available for download from iTunes on October 2, 2018. I checked Amazon today but they do not yet list the movie, just the music from the soundtrack. What the &#^%$? Not everyone using Apple products! Thomas Simmons (Director of COYOTE: The Mike Plant Story) seems to have dropped the ball on promoting this movie over the past months...

    Here is a video published today by Le Telegramme of François Gabart sailing his newly modified Trimaran Macif https://www.letelegramme.fr/voile/route-du-rhum-gabart-vole-deja-13-09-2018-12077078.php Un mois après sa remise à l'eau, le maxi-trimaran Macif, doté de foils plus performants, a effectué plusieurs sorties et avalé pas moins de 3.000 milles en vue de la Route du Rhum - Destination Guadeloupe.

    Worst Sportman of the Year

    Well that didn't take long... Romano Fenati lost his license and has been banned from racing. After he was banned, he retired from motorcycling racing. Romano Fenati has a history of bad behavior on the track https://www.asphaltandrubber.com/motogp/romano-fenati-misano-brake-lever/ Disgraced Moto2 rider Romano Fenati has lost his license and been banned from competing in all events by the Italian motorcycling federation for grabbing a rival's brake during the San Marino Grand Prix. The 22-year-old Fenati had earlier announced he was retiring after being sacked by his Marinelli Snipers team and the Forward Racing team he was due to join next season. 3https://au.news.yahoo.com/disgraced-fenati-loses-licence-pulling-rivals-brake-140126425--spt.html
  9. Moto2 rider Romano Fenati was penalized, then fired after grabbing Stefano Manzi's brake lever during the MotoGP San Marino Grand Prix. https://www.roadandtrack.com/motorsports/a23066637/fenati-fired-grabs-brake-motorcycle-race/ This clown did this at 140 MPH! This weekend, Moto2 racer Romano Fenati made the unfathomably boneheaded decision to reach over and grab competitor Stefano Manzi's brake lever during the San Marino Grand Prix. Immediately, the move earned Fenati a black flag, a disqualification, and a two-race penalty. Now, Fenati has been fired effective immediately. Fenati's jerk move came as he and Manzi were battling for position in Moto2, the second-tier racing series below MotoGP. Fenati and Manzi were running neck-to-neck when both riders overcooked a corner and briefly went off-track. Both riders maintained control and got back onto the racing line when Fenati reached over to Manzi's motorcycle and squeezed his brake lever in an apparent attempt to cause Manzi to lose control. Manzi stayed upright, but crashed not long after Fenati's meddling. Immediately, Fenati was penalized by the racing organization, but the full repercussions came today: Fenati's team, Marinelli Snipers, ended his contract effective immediately. In a statement published on Facebook, the team said Fenati's "irresponsible act endangered the life of another rider and can't be apologized in [any] way." The after-effects didn't end there. Fenati was slated to compete for MV Agusta in Moto2 starting in 2019; today, that company's president, Giovanni Castiglioni, published a post on Instagram stating that he will do everything he can to oppose Fenati joining the team, calling it the "worst" and "saddest" thing he'd ever seen in a motorcycle race.
