“Talking Sailing” From My Archives. 6 April Newspaper News

by Richard Crockett

Another day and more news on many different aspects of our sport.

It’s inevitable that the progress of ‘Shosholoza’ will become something of the norm for a while as that team, and what Captain Salvatore Sarno gave to South Africa, received saturation newspaper coverage at the time.

And let’s not also forget that epic Jules Verne record that Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and Sir Peter Blake set.

I really do need to do some research in to how many World Championships we have hosted in this country. I say this as the Enterprise Worlds off Durban feature today.

Here are the headlines:

Knox-Johnston & Blake Sail Round World in Just 74 Days.  1994 04 06 – 510 2

World Championship Countdown Has Begun.  1995 04 06 – 866

Australian Boat Found 8000km Away.  1995 04 06 – OCR 8

Sailing Action for this Weekend.  1996 04 06 – 063

America’s Cup Yacht Has Keel, Mast Attached At Waterfront.  2004 04 06 – 386
