OFF TOPIC: Follow Team Terrapin on our race from Newport to Bermuda

Follow Team Terrapin on our race from Newport to BermudaBy now I am sure you have heard of the movie Bucket List. In real life we all have one and some bucket lists may be longer than others. On my list (for those of you who know me well) are many opportunities and ideas enabled by my love for sailing. So naturally sailing in a race from Newport RI to Bermuda is on my list.

So this year I decided to join in one of the world’s classic ocean race. Starting on June 18th, 2010 will mark the start of the 104th anniversary of this challenging event. The race begins in Newport, Rhode Island where conditions are usually cold and windy and ending at the island of Bermuda in the sweltering heat. It’s a lot of endurance during these conditions across 635 nautical miles in the open ocean.

My son Philip and I created a Facebook Page (you expect anything less from me) for the team of 9 other guys I will be joining on the race to Bermuda. You can follow us if you are interested in hearing updates daily on our position and the conditions we are finding ourselves in.

I look forward to a much needed break where cell phones and email cant possibly reach us (we are making updates to the Facebook page via text message from a satellite phone so don’t even think of calling me ;-). I cant wait to return with stories and sorted tales of a great adventure!

  • Hi Paul.
    Love your website.
    I am very interested in where you got the left/right brain graphic image from. I use it in my professional development sessions with faculty at Algonquin College but I am concerned about copyright.
