In November 2012, USA’s Founding President, Dr. Stanley Paris, christened the Kiwi Spirit, on a beautiful day for his first sea trials. The temperature was 27 degrees at the 5:30 am departure from the dock. The winds were at 10kts which made for enjoyable sailing after the day warmed to a balmy 35 degrees.
Dr. Paris is in preparation for his solo non-stop and non-assisted circumnavigation on the Kiwi Spirit while raising funds for the Foundation for Physical Therapy. To break the existing record, Dr. Paris will have to complete the circumnavigation in less than 150 days. Log-on to stanleyparis.com to learn more!
