This is a bit outside our usual fields, but I think it deserves a mention.

Olin Stephens, the great American yacht designer, has died, aged 100. His work gave pleasure to many and was cause for great American pride. In Australia, we remember him for designing the legendary S&S 34, in which our Jon Sanders made a triple non-stop circumnavigation of the world. That's what I call a seaworthy boat!
