Sailing Savoir Faire Heading To Houston


I was invited to Houston to help put together their press event.  It is an ungodly hour and I am packing up the office to get ready for the trip.  There is a ton of things that just can't be transported, so our reports may be a little skimpy for awhile.  Still, we are committed to bringing the news about the Niña, a spectacular yacht build in 1928.

On June 4th, 2013, the Niña went missing in the Tasman Sea.  On the same day of the year, June 4th, 2013, John Glennie and 3 other sailors flipped in Glennie's catamaran, the Rose Noelle.  They survived for 118 days until drifting to shore.

John Glennie will be at the press event being held in Houston.  So will the families of the missing sailors, Evi Nemeth, Kyle Jackson, Danielle Wright, David Dyche, Rosemary Dyche, David Dyche IV and Matthew Wootton.

They made a movie about Glennie's adventure called Back From the Dead.

Don't miss the press event that is on August 22nd, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at the South Shore Harbor and Conference Center.  The next night there is going to be a presentation by John Glennie who survived 118 days off of the coast of New Zealand.  It is going to be a lot of education in a short period of time!

Equusearch is breaking ground in the way SAR searches are done at sea.  The search for the missing Niña is making it safer for sailors everywhere.  That is due to high tech use of satellite images and a new way to apply drift models which are used to determine the path of an object floating on the sea.
