That’s right, the Around In Ten race begins in less than 30 days. It whittled down to three competitors, a Floridian, a Mainer, and Jerusalemite. These fellows plan to race around the globe in boats smaller than 10 feet in length. Steve Rinker, the Mainer (dare I say Mainiac? ) is doing the best job of updating the AIT photo gallery. Here is his boat The Floating Bear in mid November.

Of course, if I were planning on sailing around the globe in a tiny boat, I would probably doing much more important things that uploading pictures to the internet. So I thank Steve for sharing, and cant blame the others. I hope this all actually works out, it will be fun to keep track.
Speaking of tiny boats, no word on Tom McNally’s new crossing yet, but he was kind enough to actually comment here on this very blog! My first brush with greatness!
