I am not surprised that the media are paying attention to Kiwi Spirit and the success she is having on the race circuit as well as the planning and execution of her solo non-stop and non- assisted circumnavigation. What does surprise me is the amount of attention from leading yachting magazines to local newspapers. We are posting here two articles from Soundings Magazine, which is widely read in the New England states. I had the pleasure of hosting the writer and photographer on board and having them sail with me in Antigua. No article gets all the facts right and sometimes quotes the interviewee a little inaccurately, but these two articles got most of it right. What is particularly interesting is that they consulted with the designer and builder to help get the complete picture. Enjoy the articles linked below (Reprinted with permission from Soundings Publications LLC.)!
