AUSSIE AUSSIE AYE AYE AYE
Here’s a quick shout-out. this is directed to our bareboat and mega yacht charter comrades Down Under.
A very successful event this year. More than $80,000 for homeless children. This was done by the members of the Royal Brighton Yacht Club. It was the second annual Property Industry Foundation Charity Sailing Challenge.
THIRTY FIVE YACHTS
Thirty-five yachts both participated. They are from the private sector and the charter industry. The boats set out on the bay in Melbourne to participate in the event. It brings together businesses from the real estate and construction industries.
WHAT FUNDS ARE FOR
Funds raised from the March 30 event always have a specific use. For instance, they are hiring a youth worker for Open Family Australia this year. It is a homeless children’s advocacy group based in Wyndham.

While this mommy and daddy are well-known for enjoying numerous week-long mega yacht charter vacations at sea, a simple day excursion on the water was a great introduction for their infant daughter to the yachting lifestyle.
Beyonce, husband Jay-Z, and three month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter spent the Easter holidays in one of the family’s favorite vacation enclaves – the island of St Barts.
The local paparazzi captured the parents boarding a small day charter vessel, with Blue Ivy in her mother’s arms, as they prepared to spend a lazy afternoon on the water.
Locals on St Barts are used to seeing the mediapower coupleonce or twice a year, their chartered superyachtdocked along the quay. For the short Easter weekend, the family elected to stay in shoreside accommodations. But the yachting “itch” is powerful, and the couple took a perfect-weather day as an opportunity to go boating in the afternoon – and to take along their daughter for her first boat ride.
Perhaps we’ll see the family back in St Barts at year-end, enjoying another New Year’s Eve yachting vacation.

The builders of today’s luxury yacht charter vessels use many materials. For instance, aluminum, Kevlar, and plastic resins make lightweight and fuel-efficient boats.
That all may change – thanks to a bug…
Aerogels are among the lightest solid materials in existence. Created by replacing the liquid component of a gel with a gas, aerogels are extremely low in density, and hence, fairly buoyant. Now scientists have created a new aerogel, inspired by the feet of an insect – the tiny “water strider.”
BUILD A YACHT OF AEROGEL?
The new aerogel is so buoyant, a yacht made from one pound (454 grams) of it could carry about 1,000 pounds (454 kg) of cargo.
PROFESSORS FROM HELSINKI
Created by a team of professors and scientists at the Helsinki University of Technology, the new aerogel contains tiny fibers – nano-fibrils – derived from cellulose in plants. These fibers allow the aerogel to float by using the same physics principles evidenced by the water strider’s long, skinny feet. The water strider’s feet are covered in tiny hairs that trap air, and each air bubble helps distribute the insect’s weight across the water, keeping it from breaking the surface tension.
OTHER USES FOR AEROGEL
In addition to commercial boat-building aspects, the bug-inspired aerogel could find use in environmental pollution sensors, children’s water toys, and beach floats. Even more promising is the potential application in environmental protection. It seems the gel is able to absorb large amounts of oil – making it well-suited for oil spill cleanups.
