Alex Thomson (sailor)

British yachtsman (born )

Alex Thomson (born 18 April , Bangor, Wales) is a British yachtsman.

Alex Thomson was helped early in his sailing career by Sir Keith Mills, the British businessman who ran London's victorious bid to host the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games and set up with British America's Cup campaign TEAMORIGIN. With Mills' backing, Thomson broke into the professional solo sailing circuit at a young age.

Thomson's Clipper Race win in made him the youngest skipper ever to win a round-the-world yacht race.[1][2] As of February&#;[update] he still holds this record.[1][2] He is an around the world solo sailor, and holds the hour world speed sailing record for solo mono-hulls ( nautical miles at an average speed of knots).

Sponsored by Hugo Boss he took part in the Vendée Globe /05 but was forced to retire after damage to the carbon fitting that attached the boom to the deck.[3] He also started in , but had to retire from the race after a cracked hull. He was third in and second in the edition.[4] During the latter edition, Thomson set new fastest reference times from Les Sables d'Olonne to the Equator (9 days 7 h 02 min[5]) and the Cape of Good Hope (17 days 22 h 58 min[6]).

However, 13 days into the race Hugo Boss's starboard foil broke after hitting an unidentified floating object,[7] therefore hampering Alex's progress throughout the rest of the course. Of note, most of the race takes place on port tack, that is, the boat would have made good use of the missing starboard foil.[8] Despite his foil and anemometer/autopilot problems, Thomson finished the race with the second fastest time on record – 74 days 19 h 35 min 15 sec, 16h behind Armel Le Cléac'h.[4]

In the Transat Jacques Vabre race, Thomson's $ million racing yacht was struck by a submerged object, forcing Thomson and his co-skipper Neal McDonald to make repairs in order to stabilise the boat.[9]

Seven things you need to know about the Doldrums

Text by Jonno Turner

The teams have spent the last week hurtling south at breakneck speeds, huge stomach-twisting waves and with buckets of skin–numbing amounts saltwater gushing over the deck.

So far, so Volvo Ocean Race. But there's another landmark on the horizon – and it's time for something altogether different.

Fickle winds coming and going, tropical rain spilling and stuttering from clouds as wide as cities, extreme thunderstorms cracking and warping the skyline – yep, the boats are heading for the Doldrums, well-known by the world's best sailors as an ocean parking lot around the Equator, and which could cause a complete fleet restart in Leg 2.

Here are seven things you need to know about the area which has tortured mariners for centuries

There's no wind here. The Doldrums is a low pressure area from 5°N to 5°S of the Equator. Winds are famously calm here, with prevailing breeze disappearing altogether at times, making it extremely difficult to navigate through.

It's a place for trade winds to meet other trade winds. The Doldrums is also known as the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), because it's where two sets of trade winds meet – and that's why conditions can be so shifty. Previously, it was known as the Intertropical Front, but in the s experts discovered the significance of wind field convergence, and renamed it.

It has a bit of a reputation. In fact, a pretty bad one. The Doldrums holds a distinct place in maritime history, having developed a reputation as a potentially deadly zone which could strand ships for weeks on end, causing them to run out of food and drinking water. In those days, with supplies running low, and scurvy setting in, delerium, starvation and cabin fever could all set in – and getting through this mysterious patch of Atlantic Ocean quickly wasn’t just a matter of first or last place, but life and death.

There's science behind it. The effects of the Doldrums are caused by solar radiation from the sun, as sunlight beams down directly on area around the equator. This heating causes the air to warm and rise straight up rather than blow horizontally. The result is little or no wind, sometimes for weeks on end.

It can go from 1 to in seconds. The Doldrums is known for being frustratingly slow, but it’s not just about stagnant calm winds. Often, it can move erratically between different weather patterns including violent thunder and electric storms.

It has nightmare neighbours. It’s preceeded by an area known as the Horse Latitudes. Rumour has it that the area gained its name as Spanish ships transporting horses to their colonies in the West Indies and Americas would often become becalmed here, severly prolonging the voyage and causing water shortages which led to the horses dying, and being thrown overboard.

It's hard to predict. The actual location of the ITCZ gradually varies with the seasons. Over the oceans, the seasonal cycle is subtle, as the convection is constrained by the distribution of ocean temperatures. Sometimes, a double ITCZ forms, with one located north and another south of the Equator, one of which is usually stronger than the other. When this occurs, a narrow ridge of high pressure forms between the two convergence zones.

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

Hollywood makes the "big heist" look like a cool, dramatic affair. And if they do it right, the audience is left in awe of the criminals who pulled it off against all odds. That, of course, is irresponsible. In reality, criminals are not so bold or ingenious, they're just thugs who- oh wait, absolutely everything in this article is about bold and ingenious criminals in real life? Well dang. Let's praise some crime!

A Year-Old Rappels From The Roof Of A Car Dealership To Steal Guy Fieri's Lamborghini

In , Max Wade wanted to impress a girl. Like most stories that start this way, what followed was pure idiocy. His plan sounds like well, like something a year-old would come up with. He wanted to climb to the top of a car dealership, rappel down like in Mission: Impossible, and steal Guy Fieri's $, yellow Lamborghini.

It was a stupid, stupid idea. And it worked.

A security camera snapped a shot of the car zooming across the Golden Gate Bridge, and that was the last time anyone saw it until a year and a half later. When cops eventually caught the kid and recovered the car, it wasn't even because of the original crime. Wade (by then a hardened year-old career criminal) was apprehended after he shot five times at the girl he originally wanted to impress, plus her actual boyfriend. Turns out felony grand larceny of a reality TV star's automobile is not an instant ticket to Flavor Town.

Thankfully, neither the girl nor her boyfriend were seriously injured, but Wade was sent to jail for that, as well as the theft. Fieri even testified, and it's weird watching the interview. You keep waiting for him to take a bite of a jalapeno popper and call it "funkalicious," but all he does is crack jokes about this teenager who was just sentenced to life in jail. Dynamite!

A Master Thief Parachutes Onto The Roof Of A Palace To Steal A Priceless Jewel

Gerald Blanchard was the sort of thief who would sneak into banks through heating vents, build secret hiding spots in the places he wanted to rob, then escape arrest by crawling through the ceiling of a police station. You know, classic hacky crime novel fodder. So when he heard about the Sisi Star, a priceless piece of jewelry created for Empress Elizabeth of Austria, Blanchard figured it was the sort of thing someone like him should steal as spectacularly as possible.

How? By grabbing a pilot friend, boarding a light plane, and parachuting down to land on the roof of the Austrian palace containing the jewel.

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

He then rappelled down a wall and slipped in through a window he had unlocked while on a tour of the palace museum the day before. After disabling the alarm, Blanchard quickly switched out the Star with a replica he had bought in the museum gift shop. It seems it was a very high-quality gift shop, because it took several weeks before anyone noticed the Star was missing. They actually found his abandoned parachute way earlier, but didn't think much of it, because who hasn't suddenly remembered they're wearing a parachute right before entering a museum?

Once he had this historically significant jewel in his possession, Blanchard put it in his grandmother's basement and promptly forgot about it. He knew he couldn't fence it; he just took it on a whim, like it was a Twix bar at the supermarket checkout line. He led the cops to it in after being arrested for some unrelated crimes. Twenty years after this movie-caliber heist, this master thief keeps busy by, uh, getting caught shoplifting gaming consoles at Best Buy. The sequels are always a disappointment, aren't they?

A Group Of Old Men Drill Their Way Inside A High-Security Vault

Hollywood law dictates that every heist crew must include a grumpy old guy who used to be a legendary thief. Imagine a whole flock of these dudes, and you have the crew behind the Hatton Garden Jewelry robbery in London.

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

The group was made up of very veteran thieves (aged , with a year-old whippersnapper as an accomplice) who decided to get together for one last job: stealing $18 million in gold and valuable stones from a safety deposit company. After three years of careful planning, including the essential purchase of a copy of Forensics For Dummies, the gang infiltrated the building dressed as construction workers. They then shimmied down to the vault through a freaking elevator shaft. Again, these are senior citizens. One of them had to stop to get his insulin shots.

After spending several hours drilling through the reinforced vault, they discovered that the coveted safety deposit cabinets were bolted to the floor and ceiling. So the geezers snuck away empty-handed and came back two days later with better tools. This time they tore through 73 deposit boxes, loaded their swag into garbage bins, and waltzed away.

Unfortunately for the gang, it looks like Forensics For Dummies didn't have a chapter on how to avoid CCTV cameras. Some light detective work revealed that they were still holding regular meetings at a nearby pub, and casual lip-reading showed that they were liberally boasting about the heist. Note to aspiring geriatric criminal gangs: Maybe get your grandsons to order Surveillance For Dummies for you as well.

An Autistic Flutist Steals $, In Feathers For An Underground Community Of Fishermen

Edwin Rist was an American flute player and student at London's prestigious Royal Academy of Music, which is the perfect cover for a gentleman thief, come to think of it. In , he finished performing at a swanky concert and made his way to Tring's Natural History Museum, which he infiltrated using 1) some wire cutters for the barbed wire, 2) a diamond-tipped glass cutter to slice through a high window, and 3) a rock, for the same window, after he dropped the glass cutter and thought "Fuck it."

Months earlier, Rist had disguised himself as a photographer to enter the vault, so he knew exactly where the most valuable treasures were. Wearing latex gloves, he broke the locks and rifled through case after case of precious feathers? Wait, what?

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

Turns out the museum contains one of the world's most extensive collections of bird skins and feathers, many gathered from species that haven't been around for centuries. Rist made off with a selection of the best specimens, then made an estimated $, selling them to the "feather underground." Which is a shady network of fly fishermen? Who obsessively hunt rare feathers to tie to fishing flies? What the hell is going on with this story?!

Rist apparently used a big chunk of the money to pay for new flutes. He was arrested in , and the court gave him a suspended sentence after taking his Asperger's syndrome into consideration. He was also ordered to pay full financial restitution, which is probably going to take a while, unless there's big money in fluting these days.

Venice's Fanciest Art Thief Steals A Painting For A Mob Boss, Then Steals It Back For The Cops

Vincenzo Pipino was the classiest art thief in Venice, itself easily the classiest city in which to steal art (sorry Kenosha, Wisconsin). He had a surprisingly courteous relationship with the police, and his victims even considered it a mark of good taste to have their art stolen by him. But then in , Pipino was recruited by the notorious crime boss Felice Maniero, who wanted to steal Venice's treasures to use as a bargaining chip with the Italian authorities. That's some Carmen Sandiego shit if we've ever heard it, but Maniero was a genuinely dangerous dude, so Pipino couldn't exactly say no.

A few days later, Pipino joined a tour group through Venice's Palazzo Ducale, then hid in a cell until nighttime, at which point he emerged to steal Vivarini's famed Madonna col Bambino for Maniero. It was the first successful robbery from the Ducale, a place that's been in business for longer than America.

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

On the same day, Maniero's heavily armed goons smashed into a church and stole Saint Anthony's Chin. That is, the literal chin of a saint. Italy has had a very long time to nurture some very odd priorities. Pipino didn't like the sacrilegious theft, or that he'd just helped those same people steal something else, so he decided to un-help them by stealing back the painting for the cops.

According to Pipino, Maniero told him that the painting was being kept at his cousin's, along with his pets. Assuming that meant dogs, Pipino broke in with some tranquilizer-laced meat only to find himself face-to-face with two tigers, which you may recognize as exactly two tigers too many. Fortunately, they were friendly enough, and the tranquilizers eventually worked, allowing Pipino to replace the painting with a replica and escape to heist another day.

A $, Diamond Vanishes During An Ocean's Twelve Promo Event

Ocean's Eleven was so successful that it spawned not only two sequels and a spinoff, but a pretty bonkers real-life theft. In , the studio decided to promote the upcoming Ocean's Twelve by sending George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon to the Monaco Grand Prix. And since the movie features some expensive jewelry, the producers thought it would be clever if two cars in the race sported flawless $, diamonds on their noses. What could go wrong?

TWELVE 12 PLM S PLM ACING GS

What the producers forgot is that the movie involves expensive jewelry getting stolen. All was going well until Austrian driver Christian Klien crashed one of the bedazzled cars nose-first on a hairpin bend during the very first lap. Because of safety regulations, Team Jaguar was only allowed to go clean up the mess once the race was over two hours later. Fortunately, there were hundreds of cameras covering every angle of the track, so it's not as if someone could simply walk up to the car and steal the diamond. Unfortunately, someone did that anyway. By the time the car reached the mechanic, the rock was gone. We should mention at this point that said rock was also not insured.

To this day, no one knows where the diamond ended up. Was the crash so potent that it turned into coal? Was Klien involved, and if so, was he really Sandra Bullock in a latex mask? Whatever happened, the diamond's owners, gem company Steinmetz, clearly learned from the incident, because the next time they lent diamonds for the Grand Prix, they put them on the drivers' helmets instead. Sure, it would be even smarter to not lend diamonds for the Grand Prix, but still.

A Woman Poses As An Armored Car Company Employee For Five Months At The Behest Of A Criminal Poet

Heather Tallchief was a young go-getter in the security industry, whose tight ponytail and thick glasses were a refreshing presence in a land of buzz cuts and mustaches. After getting to know her for months, her co-workers felt they could safely leave her alone in an armored car during a Vegas casino delivery run in October

They could not.

LAS VEGAS METRO POLICE DEPARTMENT 93

Tallchief's co-workers loved her so much that when she vanished along with $ million in unmarked bills, they were worried sick that she'd been kidnapped. In reality, Tallchief had driven the armored car to the garage of an "auto repair company" she had started under a fake identity (one of 12 she'd racked up by age 21), where she met up with her accomplice, an older ex-con turned poet named Roberto Solis. If you're into poetry books published from prison in the s, you know him better as "Pancho Aguila."

Tallchief and Solis packed their haul and mailed it to one of her fake identities in another state. Then, after she ditched her ponytail and glasses in She's All That fashion, the pair boarded a private jet they'd booked weeks earlier while posing as an elderly wheelchair-bound gambler and his nurse.

But this case clearly needs yet another plot twist. In , Tallchief turned up at a courthouse and surrendered to authorities. She claimed Solis had manipulated her into pulling off the heist with a combination of seduction and straight-up brainwashing, then took all the money and left her alone with their child. Such is the dangerous power of poetry.

Boat Cracks, Nearly Sinks During America’s Cup Race

New York’s Young America cracked open and nearly sank during a race in the America’s Cup challenger series at Auckland, New Zealand.

With Young America leading Japan’s Nippon approaching the final turn, the hull of the $4-million boat buckled just behind the mast after crashing through a series of five-foot waves.

Skipper Ed Baird ordered his crew to abandon ship. Team members who leaped into the icy waters of Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf were plucked to safety.

With the hull bent into a banana shape, some crewmen returned to the yacht with flotation bags and pumps and began cutting ropes and throwing sails and other equipment to waiting support boats in efforts to salvage as much as they could.

The crew frantically worked the pumps to keep the black-hulled yacht afloat as it was towed gingerly to port.

Only once in the year history of sailing’s most prized trophy has a boat sank during competition--in oneAustralia broke in half and sank in about 90 seconds off San Diego.

With winds of around 20 knots and waves around a yard, conditions Monday were similar to those experienced when the Australian boat sank. Such conditions are not uncommon for America’s Cup races.

John Bertrand, oneAustralia’s skipper, said it appeared that Young America’s hull had not split below the water line.

“It would appear a compression failure through the deck, otherwise the boat would be at the bottom of the ocean now,” Bertrand said.

Young America’s $million campaign, representing the New York Yacht Club, will now have to rely on its second boat.

Boxing

The Muhammad Ali Boxing Act, endorsed by its namesake and aimed at reforming boxing, was passed by the House of Representatives and could be on President Clinton’s desk by the end of the week.

The legislation’s main goal is to protect young fighters from exploitation. And it encourages states to adopt uniform criteria for rating boxers--a proposal included even before a grand jury accused International Boxing Federation officials of taking bribes to manipulate rankings.

The bill would require state boxing commissions to certify and approve all referees and judges, a provision added after the outcry over the Evander Holyfield-Lennox Lewis fight March

Race 10, day Teams start Ocean Sprint section of Leg 6

The first four yachts have entered the Ocean Sprint section of Leg 6, vying for vital extra points that could mean the difference between a podium finish.

em>OneDLL, GREAT Britain, Qingdao and Henri Lloyd have entered the gate of the course that runs between the lines degrees west and degrees west for the chance to win an extra 3, 2 and 1 points respectively for completing the course in the quickest time. To verify their position, skippers must record and submit to the Race Office the time of crossing the marked lines of longitude.

Henri Lloyd has moved up into first position from second yesterday, with GREAT Britain now in second place and Invest Africa in third.

OneDLL skipper Olly Cotterell said he was confident about doing well in the Ocean Sprint.

“We have stayed further north than the lead yachts - this should give us a scoring gated distance that is up to 5 miles shorter. We are also arriving at the gate as the wind has built in front of the cold front, giving us good beam reaching conditions so we are going to have a good old crack at this sprint.”

Pete Stirling, skipper of Jamaica Get All Right added: “We have had a flurry of sail changes including changing the Yankee 1 headsail for the Yankee 2 headsail and putting two reefs in the mainsail.

“We now have 25 to 30 knots of wind on our port quarter and the boat is flying along with our speed constantly in double figures. We have had a few slow and frustrating days so it is good to feel the boat pick up her skirts and fly again.”

Meanwhile, Henri Lloyd has made a tactical decision to enter Stealth Mode, it will enter at UTC today and its position will be hidden from the fleet and Race Viewer until UTC on 8 April. Rivals Old Pulteney remain in Stealth Mode until UTC on Monday 7 April.

Leg 1

Vigo to Cape Town

Both Dutch boats, ABN AMRO ONE and ABN AMRO TWO screamed to the front early on Leg 1. ABN AMRO TWO took the lead on the first night, while disaster struck Pirates of the Caribbean who retired with a cracked a bulkhead and a leak around her keel. She headed for Portugal from where she was flown to South Africa. 

movistar was the next casualty, landing off a wave with a bang and colliding with a submerged object. A rudder, daggerboard and the front of the keel were all damaged, along with major damage to the mountings for the keel hydraulics. She too retired and was shipped to Cape Town. 

Before the first weekend was over, Sunergy broke her gooseneck and stopped in Madeira for repairs. They suspended racing for 15 hours and were miles behind the pack upon resuming.

Onboard ABN AMRO ONE a fire broke out which came within five seconds of being uncontrollable. The navigator re-wired the electronics and saved the day. The boat then took maximum points at the Fernando de Noronha scoring gate. 

ABN AMRO ONE eventually racked up miles in 24 hours, setting a new record and the pair of Dutch boats led by ABN AMRO ONE was first into Cape Town, while Ericsson reported a failure in their keel system that allowed it to swing wildly on the approach to Cape Town.

Leg 2

Cape Town to Melbourne

There was almost no breeze as the fleet embarked Leg 2, which would take the fleet into the Southern Ocean. It took two hours to complete a two-mile short course and, at times, the boats drifted backwards in the adverse current. 

Barely miles from Cape Town, Ericsson headed back due to hydraulic problems with her keel. The team retired from the leg and the boat was later shipped to Australia. Brasil 1 discovered a crack in the deck close to the mast and returned to make a repair. ABN AMRO TWO smashed the world hour record, setting a new mark at miles, finishing second to her sister ship who won the leg. 

Meanwhile, Pirates of the Caribbean and movistar both pulled in to Albany after yet more issues with their hydraulic keels rams and Brasil 1, having fought her way back into the fleet, was dismasted and travelled the final few thousand miles across the Australian wilderness on a truck.

Leg 3

Melbourne to Wellington

In Melbourne, Sunergy, renamed as ING Real Estate Brunel, withdrew to make modifications and the six-boat fleet started in rough conditions. On board ABN AMRO TWO bowman, Gerd-Jan Poortman was smashed me down the deck into the daggerboard. He dislocated his tailbone and needed the onboard medic to stitch up a head wound as the boat careered along at 20 knots.

ABN AMRO ONE and movistar were at the front of the fleet for almost the entire leg. With just the Cook Strait to be negotiated, ABN AMRO ONE looked sure to win, but the wind fell from 28 knots to two in half an hour bringing movistar back in to play.  For six hours, the pair battled as they came into the view of thousands of spectators lining Wellington’s waterfront. movistar’s lead was less than a boat length after more than 1, miles of racing and her winning margin was nine seconds – the closest in race history.

Leg 4

Wellington to Rio de Janeiro

The ride out of Wellington was blistering, and almost immediately, the fleet pitched into a downhill charge across the Southern Ocean. ABN AMRO ONE headed hard south and lost 43 miles on the fleet, but the tactic paid off and by the time she reached the first ice gate, she was miles clear of her sister ship and set a course for Cape Horn in knot winds. 

For the crew of ABN AMRO ONE, this was a wonderful surprise. The boat was optimised for reaching but now she was showing the best numbers downwind. Further back, Ericsson suffered a Chinese gybe at night. She had just righted herself after a broach in 25 knots when she swung out of control and onto her side. It took the crew two hours to clear up the mess before they were able to resume racing. 

As movistar approached Cape Horn, the bomb doors around her keel failed and water exploded through the watertight keel box into the boat. Ericsson and Brasil 1 were asked to standby for a rescue while movistar’s watch leader Chris Nicholson, a trained electrical engineer, attempted to start the emergency pumps. The electrics had flooded and Nicholson wired the pumps directly to the battery terminal, taking 20 volt shocks before the pumps came to life and the boat was saved. movistar headed for Ushuaia in Argentina for repairs and a long talk among the crew over whether their injury-prone yacht was safe enough to finish the race. 

By day 12, ABN AMRO ONE had passed Cape Horn and held on to win her third leg. Ericsson finished the gruelling leg in fifth leading to big changes in the afterguard.

Leg 5

Rio de Janeiro to Baltimore

Ericsson’s results so far had been less than sparkling and before the start of Leg 5, John Kostecki who had led illbruck to a win in the previous race replaced Neal McDonald as skipper. McDonald was relegated to watch leader.

Elsewhere, there was a slight feeling of optimism in the fleet. With over half the points still available, the remainder of the race was expected to be fought in predominantly light winds – conditions in which ABN AMRO ONE did not excel. After winning the Rio de Janeiro In-Port race, the leg couldn’t have started much worse for the Dutch team. A halyard lock failed in the opening hour and sent their headsail tumbling down to the deck, costing the team a vital 18 minutes. 

movistar, meanwhile, had sailed inshore of the fleet and the tactic had paid off. Ultimately, it was spoiled when she was trapped under a cloud, handing the race back to ABN AMRO ONE, who rounded the scoring gate at Fernando de Noronha in first place, one minute and 25 seconds ahead. 

ABN AMRO ONE crossed the finish five hours ahead, a win that put her within touching distance of the overall title.

Leg 6

Annapolis to New York

In front of an enormous crowd, the sailing capital of America watched on as ABN AMRO ONE struggled at the start of leg six. Sunergy, now refitted and racing under the new name of Brunel, had bolstered the fleet.   

The route to New York included everything from flat calms to knot squalls into which the fleet headed at 11 knots. Quicker than everyone else was ABN AMRO ONE who entered the Hudson River 17 miles ahead of Pirates of the Caribbean. movistar, Brasil 1 and Ericsson with Neal McDonald back in charge, were separated by just two miles as another thrilling finish unfolded. Pirates of the Caribbean was able to hold on to second, but Brasil 1 took third after navigating through a dangerous shoal, and Ericsson crept ahead of movistar. All four boats were separated by 14 minutes. Pirates of the Caribbean had overtaken movistar in the standings by half a point.

Leg 7

New York to Portsmouth

The skies at the start were grey and the mood mixed. movistar was forced to cross the start line two hours after the fleet as a penalty for repairing a damaged winch system during the pit stop and the first 1, miles turned into another upwind struggle. 

Eight days after the start, a low-pressure system had formed and was set to rattle the fleet with 35 to 40 knots from the west. At around on May 18, ABN AMRO TWO was 1, miles from the finish in fifth place when the wind rose from 12 to 25 knots. Skipper Sebastian Josse was at the wheel as one by one the crew went below to fit their safety harnesses. Hans Horrevoets was trimming the spinnaker and waiting for his turn when ABN AMRO TWO ploughed into a wave. The boat was buried under tons of water and she shook herself off, the spinnaker was flogging and Horrevoets was gone. After 40 minutes of searching, the crew found his lifeless body and hauled him back on board, but life had drained out and Horrevoets could not be resuscitated. A few hours later, the shocked and shaken crew put ABN AMRO TWO back on course for Portsmouth. 

Two days later, movistar landed off a big wave with a huge bang. Water surged into the through the broken keel structure. With a storm of 50 knots promised within the next 24 hours, decisions were crucial. The crew did not know if the keel would stay in the boat and if it didn’t, she would sink in seconds. ABN AMRO TWO stood by and the next day as the storm approached, the crew of movistar abandoned ship into a life raft and transferred to the safety of ABN AMRO TWO

Meanwhile, at the front of the fleet, ABN AMRO ONE had scored her sixth leg win in seven, and had made sure of the overall title.

Leg 8

Portsmouth to Rotterdam

The course up the west coast of Ireland and around the tip of Scotland was potentially one of the toughest, but on the day of the start, there was no wind at all and after 20 hours of racing only miles had been covered. 

After four days, the tightly packed fleet reached the Fastnet Rock, but once they reached the north of Scotland, a weather system caused a huge split. A small trough developed in the high-pressure system, which stranded Pirates of the Caribbean, ABN AMRO TWO and Brunel, while the rest opened up a mile lead. Brasil 1 forged a lead they would never lose, beating ABN AMRO ONE by just three minutes. It was a thrilling finish to a leg that most the sailors wanted to forget.

Leg 9

Rotterdam to Gothenburg

Happily, for ABN AMRO ONE, the race had already been won, because she made a terrible start at the back of the fleet. The wind was variable and with one missed shift Pirates of the Caribbean fell to the back of the fleet and Brasil 1 shot to the top. Cutting her losses, Pirates of the Caribbean peeled off towards the coast, setting up a thrilling final night at sea. Soon she had jumped to third. ABN AMRO opened a mile lead on Brasil 1 – and then the order changed again. Just 15 miles from the finish, ABN AMRO TWO was becalmed, but all the while, a spec on the horizon behind them grew bigger. Pirates of the Caribbean loomed into view heading for the lead. And when she took it, she didn’t give it back. The final margin was four minutes. 

ABN AMRO ONE, meanwhile, finished last. “We were last in the first in-port race and we’re last here,” skipper Mike Sanderson said. “I guess it’s what you do in the middle that counts.” He was right.

Racing at Santa Anita : Brave Raj Has 2 Cracked Knees, 2-Year-Old Filly’s Career May Be Over

Brave Raj, a $, horse who quickly earned more than $, last year, may not run again after X-rays Friday showed that she had cracked both front knees.

The 2-year-old filly was injured Wednesday in a workout at Santa Anita, where two months ago she won the $1-million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes and probably clinched the division championship.

There is a possibility that pins could be inserted in both knees so that Brave Raj might try running again, but that would require a long recuperation. A more likely option is retiring her now for breeding purposes.

Trainer Mel Stute said he would have to discuss Brave Raj’s future with Dolly Green, the Beverly Hills woman who bought the filly in May, shortly after she had won her first start.

After Green bought her, Brave Raj won two stakes at Del Mar, two more at Calder and then took the Breeders’ Cup by 5 1/2 lengths over Tappiano, a New York horse who had been undefeated.

Stute, trying to make Brave Raj the first 2-year-old to earn $1 million, started her against colts in the $1-million Hollywood Futurity Dec. 14, but she finished fifth, ending the year with seven wins and one place in nine starts, and purses of $,, which is a record for 2-year-old fillies.

Stute said it was fortunate that he and an assistant, Gary Gregory, had picked out Brave Raj for Green when they did, because shortly after the purchase, the owner’s advisers recommended that she cut back on her horse spending.

Brave Raj, a daughter of Rajab and Bravest Yet, is a Florida-bred who was originally sold at auction as an unraced 2-year-old for $24,

Horse Racing Notes Family Style, an Eclipse Award winner in , and Life at the Top, who could win a championship for , form a two-horse entry for trainer Wayne Lukas in today’s La Brea Stakes at Santa Anita. Also in the field is Top Corsage, who last year had trouble winning in California but took four stakes in Illinois, Louisiana and Kentucky. . . . Strawberry Road II, who hasn’t raced since finishing fifth in the Hollywood Invitational last May, will carry top weight of pounds Sunday in the $, San Gabriel Handicap at Santa Anita. The horse field, in post-position order: Strawberry Road, Catane, Aventino, Nostalgia’s Star, Conquering Hero, Nugget Point, Silveyville, Nasib, Will Dancer, Louis Le Grand, Over the Ocean, Inevitable Leader and Spellbound. . . .

Boat Cracks, Nearly Sinks During America’s Cup Race

New York’s Young America cracked open and nearly sank during a race in the America’s Cup challenger series at Auckland, New Zealand.

With Young America leading Japan’s Nippon approaching the final turn, the hull of the $4-million boat buckled just behind the mast after crashing through a series of five-foot waves.

Skipper Ed Baird ordered his crew to abandon ship. Team members who leaped into the icy waters of Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf were plucked to safety.

With the hull bent into a banana shape, some crewmen returned to the yacht with flotation bags and pumps and began cutting ropes and throwing sails and other equipment to waiting support boats in efforts to salvage as much as they could.

The crew frantically worked the pumps to keep the black-hulled yacht afloat as it was towed gingerly to port.

Only once in the year history of sailing’s most prized trophy has a boat sank during competition--in oneAustralia broke in half and sank in about 90 seconds off San Diego.

With winds of around 20 knots and waves around a yard, conditions Monday were similar to those experienced when the Australian boat sank. Such conditions are not uncommon for America’s Cup races.

John Bertrand, oneAustralia’s skipper, said it appeared that Young America’s hull had not split below the water line.

“It would appear a compression failure through the deck, otherwise the boat would be at the bottom of the ocean now,” Bertrand said.

Young America’s $million campaign, representing the New York Yacht Club, will now have to rely on its second boat.

Boxing

The Muhammad Ali Boxing Act, endorsed by its namesake and aimed at reforming boxing, was passed by the House of Representatives and could be on President Clinton’s desk by the end of the week.

The legislation’s main goal is to protect young fighters from exploitation. And it encourages states to adopt uniform criteria for rating boxers--a proposal included even before a grand jury accused International Boxing Federation officials of taking bribes to manipulate rankings.

The bill would require state boxing commissions to certify and approve all referees and judges, a provision added after the outcry over the Evander Holyfield-Lennox Lewis fight March

Alex Thomson (sailor)

British yachtsman (born )

Alex Thomson (born 18 April , Bangor, Wales) is a British yachtsman.

Alex Thomson was helped early in his sailing career by Sir Keith Mills, the British businessman who ran London's victorious bid to host the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games and set up with British America's Cup campaign TEAMORIGIN. With Mills' backing, Thomson broke into the professional solo sailing circuit at a young age.

Thomson's Clipper Race win in made him the youngest skipper ever to win a round-the-world yacht race.[1][2] As of February&#;[update] he still holds this record.[1][2] He is an around the world solo sailor, and holds the hour world speed sailing record for solo mono-hulls ( nautical miles at an average speed of knots).

Sponsored by Hugo Boss he took part in the Vendée Globe /05 but was forced to retire after damage to the carbon fitting that attached the boom to the deck.[3] He also started in , but had to retire from the race after a cracked hull. He was third in and second in the edition.[4] During the latter edition, Thomson set new fastest reference times from Les Sables d'Olonne to the Equator (9 days 7 h 02 min[5]) and the Cape of Good Hope (17 days 22 h 58 min[6]).

However, 13 days into the race Hugo Boss's starboard foil broke after hitting an unidentified floating object,[7] therefore hampering Alex's progress throughout the rest of the course. Of note, most of the race takes place on port tack, that is, the boat would have made good use of the missing starboard foil.[8] Despite his foil and anemometer/autopilot problems, Thomson finished the race with the second fastest time on record – 74 days 19 h 35 min 15 sec, 16h behind Armel Le Cléac'h.[4]

In the Transat Jacques Vabre race, Thomson's $ million racing yacht was struck by a submerged object, forcing Thomson and his co-skipper Neal McDonald to make repairs in order to stabilise the boat.[9]

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

Hollywood makes the "big heist" look like a cool, dramatic affair. And if they do it right, the audience is left in awe of the criminals who pulled it off against all odds. That, of course, is irresponsible. In reality, criminals are not so bold or ingenious, they're just thugs who- oh wait, absolutely everything Pre-Installed for PC this article is about bold and ingenious criminals in real life? Well dang. Let's praise some crime!

A Year-Old Rappels From The Roof Of A Car Dealership To Steal Guy Fieri's Lamborghini

InMax Wade wanted to impress a girl. Like most stories that start this way, what followed was pure idiocy. His plan sounds like well, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, like something a year-old would come up with, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked. He wanted Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked climb to the top of a car dealership, rappel down like in Mission: Impossible, and steal Guy Fieri's $, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, yellow Lamborghini.

It was a stupid, stupid idea. And it worked.

A security camera snapped a shot of the car zooming across the Golden Gate Bridge, and that was the last time anyone saw it until a year and a half later. When cops eventually caught the kid and recovered the car, it wasn't even because of the original crime. Wade (by then a hardened year-old career criminal) was apprehended after he shot five times at the girl he originally wanted to impress, plus her actual boyfriend. Turns out felony grand larceny of a reality TV star's automobile is not an instant ticket to Flavor Town.

Thankfully, neither the girl nor her boyfriend were seriously injured, but Wade was sent to jail for that, as well as the theft. Fieri even testified, and it's Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked watching the interview. You keep waiting for him to take a bite of a jalapeno popper and call it "funkalicious," but all he does is crack jokes about this teenager who was just sentenced to life in jail. Dynamite!

A Master Thief Parachutes Onto The Roof Of A Palace To Steal A Priceless Jewel

Gerald Blanchard was the sort of thief who would sneak into banks through heating vents, build secret hiding spots in the places he wanted to rob, then escape arrest by crawling through the ceiling of a police station. You know, classic hacky crime novel fodder. So when he heard about the Sisi Star, a priceless piece of jewelry created for Empress Elizabeth of Austria, Blanchard figured it was the sort of thing someone like him should steal as spectacularly as possible.

How? By grabbing a pilot friend, boarding a light plane, and parachuting down to land on the roof of the Austrian palace containing the jewel.

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

He then rappelled down a wall and slipped in through a window he had unlocked while on a tour of the palace museum the day before. After disabling the alarm, Blanchard quickly switched out the Star with a replica he had bought in the museum gift shop. It seems it was a very high-quality gift shop, because it took several weeks before anyone noticed the Star was missing. They actually found his abandoned parachute way earlier, but didn't think much of it, because who hasn't suddenly remembered they're wearing a parachute right before entering a museum?

Once he had this historically significant jewel in his possession, Blanchard put it in his grandmother's basement and promptly forgot about it. He knew he couldn't fence it; he just took it on IsoBuster 4.8 Crack Incl Keygen New Version 2022 whim, like it was a Twix bar at the supermarket checkout line. He led the cops to it in Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked being arrested for some unrelated crimes. Twenty years after this movie-caliber heist, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, this master thief keeps busy by, uh, getting caught shoplifting gaming consoles at Best Buy. The sequels are always a disappointment, aren't they?

A Group Of Old Men Drill Their Way Inside A High-Security Vault

Hollywood law dictates that every heist crew must include a grumpy Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked guy who used to be a legendary thief. Imagine a whole flock of these dudes, and you have the crew behind the Hatton Garden Jewelry robbery in London.

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

The group was made up of very veteran thieves (agedwith a year-old whippersnapper as an accomplice) who decided to get together for one last job: stealing $18 million in gold and valuable stones from a safety deposit company. After three years of careful planning, including the essential purchase of a copy of Forensics For Dummies, the gang infiltrated the building dressed as construction workers. They then shimmied down to the vault through a freaking elevator shaft. Again, these are senior citizens. One of them had to stop to get his insulin shots.

After spending several hours drilling through the reinforced vault, they discovered that the coveted safety deposit cabinets were bolted to the floor and ceiling. So the geezers snuck away empty-handed and came back two days later with better tools. This time they tore through 73 deposit boxes, loaded their swag into garbage bins, and waltzed away.

Unfortunately for the gang, it looks like Forensics For Dummies didn't have a chapter on how to avoid CCTV cameras. Some light Iobit Malware Fighter 6.5.0 Key license key Archives work revealed that they were still holding regular meetings at a nearby pub, and casual lip-reading showed that they were liberally boasting about the heist. Note to aspiring geriatric criminal gangs: Maybe get your grandsons to order Surveillance For Dummies for you as well.

An Autistic Flutist Steals $, In Feathers For An Underground Community Of Fishermen

Edwin Rist was an American flute player and student at London's prestigious Royal Academy of Music, which is the perfect cover for a gentleman thief, come to think of it. InRacing Archives - Ocean Cracked, he finished performing at a swanky concert and made his way to Tring's Natural History Museum, which he infiltrated using 1) some wire cutters for the barbed wire, 2) a diamond-tipped glass cutter to slice through a high window, and 3) a rock, for the same window, after he dropped the glass cutter and thought "Fuck it."

Months earlier, Rist had disguised himself as a photographer to enter the vault, so he knew exactly where the most valuable treasures were. Wearing latex gloves, he broke the locks and rifled through case after case of precious feathers? Wait, what?

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

Turns out the office product key 2019 Archives contains one of the world's most extensive collections of bird skins and feathers, many gathered from species that haven't been around for centuries. Rist made off with a selection of the best specimens, then made an estimated $, selling them to the "feather underground." Which is a shady network of fly fishermen? Who obsessively hunt rare feathers to tie to fishing flies? What the hell is going on with this story?!

Rist apparently used a big chunk of the money to pay for new flutes. He was arrested inand the court gave him a suspended sentence after taking his Asperger's syndrome into consideration. He was also ordered to pay full financial restitution, which is probably going to take a while, unless there's big money in fluting these days.

Venice's Fanciest Art Thief Steals A Painting For A Mob Boss, Then Steals It Back For The Cops

Vincenzo Pipino was the classiest art thief in Venice, itself easily the classiest city in which to steal art (sorry Kenosha, Wisconsin). He had a surprisingly courteous relationship with the police, and his victims even considered it a mark of good taste to have their art stolen by him. But then inPipino was recruited by the notorious crime boss Felice Maniero, who wanted to steal Venice's treasures to use as a bargaining chip with the Italian authorities. That's some Carmen Sandiego shit if we've ever heard it, but Maniero was a genuinely dangerous dude, so Pipino couldn't exactly say no.

A few days later, Pipino joined a tour group through Venice's Palazzo Ducale, then hid in a cell until nighttime, at which point he emerged to steal Vivarini's famed Madonna col Bambino for Maniero, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked. It was the first Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked robbery from the Ducale, a place that's been in business for longer than America.

7 &#;Ocean&#;s Eleven&#;-Style Heists (That Happened In Real Life)

On the same day, Maniero's heavily armed goons smashed into a church and stole Saint Anthony's Chin. That is, the literal chin of a saint. Italy has had a very long time to nurture some very odd priorities. Pipino didn't like the sacrilegious theft, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, or that he'd just helped those same people steal something else, so he decided to un-help them by stealing back the painting for the cops.

According to Pipino, Maniero told him that the painting was being kept at his cousin's, along with his pets. Assuming that meant dogs, Pipino broke in with some tranquilizer-laced meat only to find himself face-to-face with two tigers, which you may recognize as exactly two mobile repairing Archives too many. Fortunately, they were friendly enough, and the tranquilizers eventually worked, allowing Pipino to replace the painting with a replica and escape to heist another day.

A $, Diamond Vanishes During An Ocean's Twelve Promo Event

Ocean's Eleven was so successful that it spawned not only two sequels and a spinoff, but a pretty bonkers real-life theft. Inthe studio decided to promote the upcoming Ocean's Twelve by sending George Clooney, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon to the Monaco Grand Prix. And since the movie features some expensive jewelry, the producers thought it would be clever if two cars in the race sported flawless $, diamonds on their noses. What could go wrong?

TWELVE 12 PLM S PLM ACING <a href=ProtonVPN 1.12.0 keygen Archives ">

What the producers forgot is that the movie involves expensive jewelry getting Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked. All was going well until Austrian driver Christian Klien crashed one of the bedazzled cars nose-first on a hairpin bend during the very first lap, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked. Because of safety regulations, Team Jaguar was only allowed to go clean up the mess once the race was over two hours later. Fortunately, there were hundreds of cameras covering every Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked of the track, so it's not as if someone could simply walk up to the car and steal the diamond. Unfortunately, someone did that anyway. By the time the car reached the mechanic, the rock was gone. We should mention at this point that said rock was also not insured.

To this day, no one knows where the diamond ended up. Was the crash so potent that it turned into coal? Was Klien involved, and if so, was he really Sandra Bullock in a latex mask? Whatever happened, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, the diamond's owners, gem company Steinmetz, clearly learned from the incident, because the next time they lent diamonds for the Grand Prix, they put them on the drivers' helmets instead. Sure, it would be even smarter to not lend diamonds for the Grand Prix, but still.

A Woman Poses As An Armored Car Company Employee For Five Months At The Behest Of A Criminal Poet

Heather Tallchief was a young go-getter in the security industry, whose tight ponytail and thick glasses were a refreshing presence in a land of buzz cuts and mustaches. After getting to know her for months, her co-workers felt they could safely leave her alone in an armored car during a Vegas casino delivery run in October

They could not.

LAS VEGAS METRO POLICE DEPARTMENT 93

Tallchief's co-workers loved her so much that when she vanished along with $ million in unmarked bills, they were worried sick that she'd been kidnapped. In reality, Tallchief had driven the armored car to the garage of an "auto repair company" she had started under a fake identity (one of 12 she'd racked up by age 21), where she met up with her accomplice, an older ex-con turned poet named Roberto Solis. If you're into poetry books published from prison in the s, you know him better as "Pancho Aguila."

Tallchief and Solis packed their haul and mailed it to one of her fake identities in another state. Then, after she ditched her ponytail and glasses in She's All That fashion, the pair boarded a private jet they'd booked weeks earlier while posing as an elderly wheelchair-bound gambler and his nurse.

But this case clearly needs yet another plot twist. InTallchief turned up at a courthouse and surrendered to authorities. She claimed Solis had manipulated her into pulling off the heist with a combination of seduction and straight-up brainwashing, then took all the money and left her alone with their child. Such is the dangerous power of poetry.

With the hull bent into a banana shape, some crewmen returned to the yacht with flotation bags and pumps and began cutting ropes and throwing sails and other equipment to waiting support boats in efforts to salvage as much as they could.

The crew frantically worked the pumps to keep the black-hulled yacht afloat as it was towed gingerly to port.

Only once in the year history of sailing’s most prized trophy has a boat sank during competition--in oneAustralia broke in half and sank in about 90 seconds off San Diego.

With winds of around 20 knots and waves around a yard, conditions Monday were similar to those experienced when the Australian boat sank. Such conditions are not uncommon for America’s Cup races.

John Bertrand, oneAustralia’s skipper, said it appeared that Young America’s hull had not split below the water line.

“It would appear a compression failure through the deck, otherwise the boat would be at the bottom of the ocean now,” Bertrand said.

Young America’s $million campaign, representing the New York Yacht Club, will now have to rely on its second boat.

Boxing

The Muhammad Ali Boxing Act, endorsed by its namesake and aimed at reforming boxing, was passed by the House of Representatives and could be on President Clinton’s desk by the end of the week.

The legislation’s main goal is to protect young fighters from exploitation. And it encourages states to adopt uniform criteria for rating boxers--a proposal included even before a grand jury accused International Boxing Federation officials of taking bribes to manipulate rankings.

The bill would require state boxing commissions to certify and approve all referees and judges, a provision added after the outcry over the Evander Holyfield-Lennox Lewis fight March

Amelia Earhart

Barron Hilton Pioneers of Flight (); Golden Age of Flight ()

Amelia Earhart is probably the most famous female pilot in aviation history, an accolade due both to her aviation career and to her mysterious disappearance. On May 20&#;21,Earhart became the first woman &#; and the second person after Charles Lindbergh &#; to fly nonstop and solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Flying a red Lockheed Vega 5B, she left Harbor Grace, Newfoundland, Canada, and landed about 15 hours later near Londonderry, Northern Ireland. The feat made Earhart an instant worldwide sensation and proved she was a courageous and able pilot. Then, on August 24&#;25, she About Us - 10 (Ten) Crack Software Collection the first solo, nonstop flight by a woman across the United States, from Los Angeles to Newark, New Jersey, establishing a women's record of 19 hours and 5 minutes and setting Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked women's distance record of 3, kilometers (2, miles).

Born in Atchison, Kansas, on July 24,Amelia Earhart displayed an independent style from childhood, including keeping a scrapbook on accomplished women, taking an auto repair course, and attending college (but never graduating). She attended her first flying exhibition in while serving as a Red Cross nurse's aide in Toronto, Canada. She took her first flight in California in Decemberwith veteran flyer Frank Hawks, and declared, "As soon as I left the ground, I knew I myself had to fly." Her first instructor was Anita "Neta" Snook who gave her lessons in a Curtiss Jenny. To pay for flight lessons, Earhart worked as a telephone company clerk and photographer. Earhart soloed inbought her first airplane, a Kinner Airster, in and wasted no time in setting a women's altitude record of 4, meters (14, feet), Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked. InEarhart became the 16th woman to receive an official Fédération Aéronautique Internationale pilot license.

Earhart moved to east to be near her sister and mother, and, after a second year at Columbia University in New York City, began working in Boston at the Denison Settlement House as a social worker with immigrant families. In the spring ofshe was flying at Dennison Airport, and had joined the local National Aeronautic Association, when she was offered the opportunity of a lifetime: to become the first woman to fly across the Atlantic as a passenger.

Amy Phipps Guest owned the Fokker arenaqq.us Friendship and wanted to make the flight but when her family objected, she asked aviator Richard Byrd and publisher/publicist George Putnam to find "the right sort of girl" for the trip. On June 17,Earhart and pilots Wilmer Stultz and Lou Gordon departed Trepassey, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked and, though promised time at the controls of the tri-motor, she was never given the opportunity to fly the aircraft during the hour minute flight to Burry Point, Wales. She did get in the pilot's seat for a time on the final hop to Southampton, England.

The dramatic flight brought her international attention and the opportunity to earn a living in aviation. Putnam became her manager and she began lecturing and writing on aviation around the country. In August ofshe placed third in the All-Women's Air Derby, behind Louise Thaden and Gladys O'Donnell, which was the first transcontinental air race for women (from Santa Monica, California to Cleveland, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, Ohio) and a race she helped organized.  This race, closely followed by the press and by the public who flocked to the stops along the way, proved that women could fly in rugged and competitive conditions.

Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked few months after the Derby, a group of women pilots decided to form an organization for social, recruitment, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, and business purposes. Ninety-nine women, out of licensed U.S. female pilots, became charter members, inspiring the organization's name The Ninety-Nines (99s); Earhart became their first president. Female pilots were keenly aware of the lack of social and economic independence for all women and were determined to help one another.

Inafter only 15 minutes of instruction, Earhart became the first woman to fly an autogiro, made by Pitcairn and featuring Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked blades to increase lift and allow short takeoffs and landings. Earhart set the first autogiro altitude record and made two autogiro cross-country tours, which were marked by three public "crack-ups," as she called them. Though Earhart was the most famous woman pilot, she was not the most skilled.

Determined to prove herself, Earhart decided to fly the Atlantic Ocean again, but this time alone. She thought a transatlantic flight would bring her respect, something other women sought too -- Ruth Nichols made an attempt in crashing in Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, but she was planning another attempt when Earhart succeeded. During her 3,kilometer (2,mile) nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic on May, Earhart fought fatigue, a leaky fuel tank, and a cracked manifold that spewed flames out the side of the engine cowling. Ice formed on the Vega's wings and caused an unstoppable 3,foot descent to just above the waves. Realizing Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked was on a course far north of France, she landed in a farmer's field in Culmore, near Londonderry, Northern Ireland, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked. Acclaimed in London, Paris, and Rome, she returned home to a ticker tape parade in New York City and honors in Washington, D.C. By July and August she was back in the Vega for her transcontinental flight.

On January 11&#;12,Amelia Earhart became the first person to fly solo from Hawaii to the U.S. mainland, this time in a Lockheed 5C Vega. Although some called it a publicity stunt for Earhart and Hawaiian sugar plantation promoters, it was a dangerous3,kilometer (2,mile) flight that had already claimed several lives. Of that flight she remarked: "I wanted the flight just to contribute. I could only hope one more passage across that part of the Pacific would mark a little more clearly the pathway over which an air service of the future will inevitably fly." Later that year, Earhart made record flights from Los Angeles to Mexico City and from Mexico City to Newark, New Jersey. She also placed fifth in the Bendix Race. Earhart was a two-time Harmon Trophy winner and was also the recipient of the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross.

Earhart became the first woman vice president of the National Aeronautic Association, which authorized official records and races. She persuaded the organization to establish separate Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked records because women did not have the money or planes &#; and thus the experience &#; to fairly compete against men for "world" titles. Earhart served as a partner in the Transcontinental Air Transport and Ludington airlines and lobbied Congress for aviation legislation. She promoted the safety and efficiency of air travel to women, on the premise that they would influence men. She tirelessly lectured across the country on the subjects of aviation and women's issues and wrote for Cosmopolitan and various magazines. She wrote about her flights and career in 20 Hours and 40 Minutes, The Fun of It, and Last Flight, which Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked published after her disappearance.

Earhart Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked George Putnam in &#; hesitantly &#; on Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked condition that they would separate in a year if unhappy. Though some called it a marriage of convenience, they remained together.

Earhart designed a line of "functional" women's clothing, including dresses, blouses, pants, suits, and hats, initially using her own sewing machine, dress form, and seamstress. Though "tousle-haired" Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked rather thin, she photographed well and modeled her own designs for promotional spreads. Earhart also designed a line of lightweight, canvas-covered plywood luggage sold by Orenstein Trunk of Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, New Jersey. Earhart luggage was sold into the s and featured an Amelia Earhart luggage key, prompting some people to believe they possessed her "personal" aircraft or suitcase key.

Racing Archives - Ocean CrackedEarhart became a visiting professor at Purdue University at the invitation of Purdue president Edward Elliott, an advocate of higher education for women, especially in engineering and science. Earhart, a former premedical student, served as a counselor for women and a lecturer in aeronautics. Elliott was also interested in supporting Earhart's flying career and convinced Purdue benefactors to purchase a twin-engine Lockheed E Electra for her. Many companies contributed their latest aviation technology to her Flying Laboratory, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked.

Earhart decided to make a world flight and she planned a route as close to the equator as possible, which meant flying several long overwater legs to islands in the Pacific Ocean. On March 20,Earhart crashed on takeoff at Luke Field, Honolulu, Hawaii, ending her westbound world flight that had begun at Oakland, California. The Electra was returned to Lockheed Aircraft Company in Burbank, California, for extensive repairs. On June 1,Earhart began an eastbound round-the-world flight from Oakland, via Miami, Florida, in the Electra with Fred Noonan as her navigator. They reached Lae, New Guinea on June 29, having flown 35, kilometers (22, miles) with 11, kilometers (7, miles) more to go to Oakland. They then departed Lae on July 2 for the 4,kilometer (2,mile) flight to their next refueling stop, Howland Island, a three-kilometer (two-mile) long and less-than-a-mile wide dot in the Pacific Ocean.

Unfortunately, due to various circumstances, Earhart and the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Itasca, anchored off shore of Howland, could not complete any direct two-way radio communication and neither Earhart nor Noonan were competent at Morse Code. However, the Itasca did receive several strong voice transmissions from Earhart as she approached the area, the last at am stating: "We are on the line of position Will repeat message. We will repeat this message on kilocycles. Wait. Listening on kilocycles. We are running north and south." Earhart and Noonan never found Howland and they were declared lost at sea on July 19, following a massive sea and air search.

Earhart's disappearance spawned countless theories involving radio problems, poor communication, navigation or pilot skills, other landing sites, spy missions and imprisonment, and even living quietly in New Jersey or on a rubber plantation in the Philippines, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked. The most reasonable explanation, based on Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked known facts of her flight, is that they were unable to locate Howland Island, Racing Archives - Ocean Cracked, ran out of fuel, and ditched into the Pacific Ocean.

Earhart's disappearance remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of the 20th century, and it often overshadows her true legacies as a courageous and dedicated aviator and as an enduring inspiration to women.
