Sailor seeks world record at age 80


stanley_paris2.jpg Stanley Paris hopes his third attempt will be a success. The former Dunedin sailor has already made two failed attempts on his Bruce Farr-designed yacht Kiwi Spirit. But this time the University of St Augustine founder, physiotherapist, wealthy real estate investor and adventurer has a new French-designed German-built yacht - Kiwi Spirit 2 - and hopes his ``third time will be a charm''. The present record, from Bermuda to Bermuda, is 150 days, 6 hours, and the record for the oldest person to circumnavigate non-stop is 71. Just completing the voyage non-stop will make me, at age 80, the oldest to have done a successful solo.''
