Please mark in your shiny new hard copy 2013 calendar, your smartphone, or your Google calendar: April 6, 2013. The movie, Racing Around the World Alone is to be shown at the Stockey Centre with proceeds to Sail Parry Sound. This is the story of the 2008/2009 Vendée Globe race, with one Canadian competitor  – Derek Hatfield, on a quest to be the fastest to sail 27,000 miles around the world,non stop, without assistance and alone on 60 foot sailboats. This is one of the most extreme challenges a human being can face.  For a preview, see  http://www.sailingaroundtheworld.tv/   Plan to be at the Stockey Centre on April 6, to live the adventure!
