I have been asked about the flags I fly. The first is the flag of the United States, as the boat is designed, built and documented in the United States, and I am now also a citizen of the U.S., as well as of New Zealand. The latter nation has as its national bird, the flightless Kiwi, and New Zealanders are known as "Kiwi's." I also fly the club pennant of the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club, which is in Dover, England. My connection there is with The Channel Swimming Association, of which I am currently Vice President and have spent much time for many summers either training to swim the Channel solo (five attempts with two successful completions) or taking part in or sponsoring relays across the channel from my university, the University of St. Augustine. The next flag I fly is that of the Ocean Cruising Club, which is an international club that draws together through its newsletter and magazine, those who cruise for pleasure. Next I fly the flags of the City of St. Augustine, the oldest city in North America, and which is now celebrating its 450th Anniversary. Kiwi Spirit and the City have signed a mutual agreement of cooperation.
