Jimmi the Magician

Well-known Aussie yachtie James “Jimmi the Magician” Doherty found himself with a bad ticker yesterday after delivering a boat from Japan to LA for the Transpac, and one of his friends has asked a special favor of the SoCal anarchists: Go and see this legend and talk yachting while he recovers from an emergency heart valve replacement.

No one has done more Melbourne Osaka races, and he usually delivers back to Oz singlehanded.  He’s sailed tall ships, fast boats you all know, and everything in between; even sailed a square rigger to Siberia with a Russian crew.  Jimmi has hundreds of thousands of miles delivering, and lives on his half-tonner in Australia.

His friends wrote that “Jimmi is by himself and now faces another 10 days in hospital alone, and another 3 weeks before he can fly  back to Oz.  If any sailors nearby feel like dropping in to Cedar Sinai Hospital in LA to go and talk sailing for a half hour, it would do wonders for him.  He is the real deal.”
