Note sure if will be on again - I saw it was going to be on by fluke a week ago and taped it..

Great doc on the Duke's life - see it you can catch it again if you missed it.. Learnt a lot .. "This is your life".. The one person we all ultimately owe living our lives dreams .. A Real class act..

Happened to be at OA doing a surf check and ended up following the boats north looking at end of The Worrell 1000 just north of the pier - back for 2022 after a hiatus..

Team Australia won the Jensen B / CB leg - came in about 9.30 pm.. 3 or 4 more boats out there.. was slightly chilly with the wind.. Smythe's mast broke north of the inlet.. Brutal sailing conditions beating to windward against pounding waves.. can't imagine what it was like in the dark.. Allegedly tomorrow at 10 am the next leg starts - if they don't cancel it...

PS - it was side side/off up there.. Not sure what the morrow will bring but keep an eye on the local winds.. You never know around these parts..

Just watched it--awesome and moving, also on demand on Spectrum, ch 5--worth the watch to see what he went through and accomplished in life!
