Faux News douchebag and selfie weirdo Geraldo Rivera donated his 68′ S&S to the Maine Maritime Academy. Good on ya. Now quit being such a clown on TV, oh wait, that’s your job…
Geraldo Rivera says he couldn’t possibly sell his beloved 68-foot sailboat since it’s like one of the family. But as the Fox News host wrestled with work demands he didn’t have time to use his aluminum ketch.
So he decided to donate Voyager to the Maine Maritime Academy in Castine, according to the Bangor Daily News.
The sailboat will help train students enrolled in the academy’s vessel operations technology program and small vessel operations program, director of college relations Jennifer DeJoy said. The students will earn sea hours and training time that they need to receive a limited Coast Guard license and to graduate with a bachelor’s degree, she told the Bangor Daily News.
Rivera said parting with Voyager was a decision he went back and forth on three or four times. He excitedly recalled sailing with his family to Tonga, near the International Date Line on Dec. 31, 1999, where they were among the first to experience the new millennium. He also sailed Voyager up the Amazon River, a trip that was featured on the Travel Channel.
