old but not in the way

Stanley ParisLeaving this coming Saturday, Stanley Paris at 76, plans to set a new bar by completing a circumnavigation from Bermuda to Bermuda, as the oldest to do so on a cruiser.

His boat is the impressive 63′ Farr designed, Lyman Morse built ”kiwi Spirit”. He will also challenge the notion that do so you must leave a giant carbon footprint. He plans to pull the motor and generator prior to heading out and rely only on wind, solar and water power for his circumnavigation.

He is attempting to break the record of Dodge Morgan, who circumnavigated the globe under sail non-stop and unassisted in 1986 at age 58 on American Promise.

The records he is attempting to set:

The oldest person to circumnavigate under sail non-stop
The fastest to circumnavigate in a monohull cruising boat
The first ever to circumnavigate non-stop entirely green

Awesome, really. Shout out to Anarchist mstrsail.
