Dolphin Spirit that is! Currently on display at the Strictly Sail Boat Show in Jack London Square in Oakland. The owner Michael Reppy is using the 43’ Grainger trimaran, formerly known as Spirit of Emu to attempt to break the solo sailing record from San Francisco to Japan in 2011, to protest the yearly Japanese Dolphin Slaughter, which continues unabated today. Michael have made three attempts on the record, which included a capsize and rescue with Nai’a in 1997, a broken rudder with Thursday’s Child in 2000, and just missing the record with Thursday’s Child in 2001.
