darwin's star

UPDATE: Dario’s partner Silvia tells us in response to our story that “a desalinator was aboard, but unfortunately it broke during a storm, probably taking a very strong blow.  If Dario wanted to die, he would never have come to the coast, albeit in such a daring way.  But he did it, and we thank you for your attention. See you next adventure!”
As lovers of insane, quixotic voyages we were stoked to see Italian asthete Dario Noseda take a beautiful old Star across the Atlantic, though many Anarchists were quick to note back in November that Darwin was probably aboard.  While the evolutionary chain may have been cheated of Dario’s sacrifice, the Star boat wasn’t so lucky; forced to seek refuge or die of dehydration when his destination changed from the Bahamas to ‘wherever I can reach’, Dario wrecked his star on St. Lucia.
Check Facebook for lots of stories about this nutter.  We hope he tries again without the death wish – in other words, who the hell crosses oceans without at least a hand-powered watermaker?
