National Geographic Adventure magazine has a long article on the capsizing of the Wave Dancer. Wow. A compelling piece of human drama and hubris reminiscent of "Into Thin Air". Law suits still pending.

i was recently contacted by nat'l geo about a story they are doing on the Fantome, which went down during Mitch...
there is an outstanding book about the Fantome and hurricane mitch, and the book really covers caribbean hurricanes well too. Wendy Auxillou's pa Ray had some input into that book, and a nice thank you. i was lucky enough to have a few conversations with the author.
Yes, Marty, that is the latest issue--must be September. I salivate over that mag and all the places I'll never go but can dream about. I think it is an Australian Outback cover. Has RL Pelton article on Iraq, and also Fay's Mega transect of Africa/Gabon.
Such a sad piece on Peter Hughes & Wave Dancer. If, the biggest word in the world.
