The Windcraft racing team ran its first race of the season, entering its iconic 38-foot Cigarette Hawk, Wild Eleven, in the Offshore 1 class at Poole in Dorset.

Wild Eleven — a Cigarette Hawk — is a very stable and safe boat. I’ve got another Cigarette, an earlier and slightly shorter model, and the improvement in stability is remarkable.”

— Jerome Brarda

GREYSTONES, IRELAND, June 19, 2019 / — The Windcraft racing team participated in its first race of the offshore season, entering its iconic 38-foot Cigarette Hawk, Wild Eleven, in the Offshore 1 class at Poole in Dorset on Sunday 9 June.

The races that day were the first in the World Offshore Championship series organised by the UK Offshore Powerboat Racing Association (UKOPRA) over this summer, with further races in the series due in July off Guernsey and concluding in late August with contests over the long and challenging Torquay to Cowes course.

Driver Jerome Brarda and throttleman Eric Adam were joined by navigator Gordon Compton, a very experienced offshore racer who has competed in long endurance races such as the Round Britain powerboat race, London to Monte Carlo, and the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes circuit.

As they purchased Wild Eleven just last January, the team spent the months since preparing and tuning the machine, which is powered by two 700HP Mercury V8 engines.

Unfortunately, with just about ten minutes left in the 1.5-hour race, Wild Eleven suffered fuel pump difficulties and had to retire. But Brarda, whose involvement in the sport goes back to 1986, pronounced himself delighted with her performance.

“This is a very stable and safe boat,” he said. “I’ve got another Cigarette, an earlier and slightly shorter model, and the improvement in stability is remarkable.

“We’ll be properly ready for the next race on Guernsey once we sort out the fuel pumps, and I’ve no doubt this boat gives us an excellent chance of winning one or more races during the season. The engines ran beautifully and we are very happy with the boat's performance.”

Wild Eleven raced under the flag of Monaco, where she is registered. Brarda, who has a base in Florida, raced under the US flag, while Eric Adam flew the French tricolour and Gordon Thompson the Union Jack.

Adam’s involvement in motorsports spans more than 30 years, starting in powerboats in the Leader Offshore Racing team of the late ex-Formula 1 driver Didier Pironi, then in rallying, then managing a major car racing team with Ferrari in the prestigious World Endurance Championship. Taking on the role of throttleman with Windcraft marks his return to offshore powerboating.

The team will be back in action on 6 July, when the Guernsey Powerboat Association will host the Guernsey Gold Cup from the 5th to the 8th of the month.

Seven boats will contest Class 1, including Poole winner Tommy One, piloted by Maurizio Schepici and Giampaolo Montavoci. The 41-foot Metamarine-built craft is powered by Seatek engines developing the same horsepower as Wild Eleven’s Mercuries.

Windcraft's audiovisual media partner InterZone Pictures will begin filming at the next race off Guernsey early in July, and in the meantime Windcraft will set a date for Wild Eleven's first speed record attempt. The team will consider several possible routes, including Portsmouth (UK) to Cherbourg (France), Monte Carlo to St Tropez, or Monte Carlo to Cannes.

InterZone has several projects in development, including a biopic of a famous Irish revolutionary of the early twentieth century.

But we want to make some TV movies before getting deep into that. Which is why we are focused on filming Jerome Brarda's attempt on World Powerboat speed records both on European runs and those in, or off, the USA — and integrating the footage into our series of documentaries on the sport of offshore powerboat racing.

CEO of RetroLock, Tania Tomyn, Continues Supporting US Virgin Islands

Tania Tomyn

Despite major setbacks in development plans, Tania Tomyn finds new ways to support the people of St. Croix.

ORANGE COUNTY, CA, UNITED STATES, June 19, 2019 / — Tania Tomyn, CEO of RetroLock Corporation, recently traveled to the US Virgin Islands. She fell in love with the Caribbean as a young girl when her parents had a second home on St. Croix, which has become their full-time residence for the past decade. Her passion for the community and the people of St. Croix has remained, not only in her heart, but in outreach and business as well.

St. Croix and the US Virgin Islands have had an ongoing power crisis for decades, with prices soaring and fluctuating over .50 KWh, which is about four times the national average Kilowatt hour rate Paying outrageous prices for things that are a necessity can change the social economic climate on the islands. Despite working as a partner and investor in The Renewable Energy Project for more than four years, Tania Tomyn was not able to change the dire situation in the community on her own.

“Residents have to make choices that you would not normally have to make just to pay the power bills,” said Tania Tomyn.

The Renewable Energy Project Tania had developed meant a great deal to local farmers in the community who were involved in the project since energy crops are a feedstock in the Anerobic Digestion process, known as (AD), one of the most common sources of baseload power in Europe, the Caribbean, and the United States. Tania Tomyn’s company was awarded a Power Purchase Agreement with Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA) for $450 Million in 2013. It was approved by the Public Service Commission and fully entitled with EPA, Local DNR, Department of Interior, and FAA. In addition, the US Department of Agriculture was providing a debt financing program for rural communities.

When Puerto Rico’s credit rating fell in 2014, the US Virgin Islands credit rating followed suit. Investors fell back despite the project being fully developed, and the US government (USDA Rural Utilities) debt providers withdrew their participation. Ultimately, the development team was left with no choice but to abandon the project in 2015. The Renewable Energy Project would have produced 9MW of baseload power for the Island of St. Croix, approximately 20% of the current total grid. It would have also had the lowest carbon footprint compared to any other power used in the USVI, including over solar, natural gas, or hydro.

As an entrepreneur, Tania Tomyn understands that even the best projects can be severely affected by the financial stability of a region. Her passion for the US Virgin Islands and the people of St. Croix continues through outreach in different ways, such as by supporting victims of abuse at the St. Croix Women’s Coalition (WCSC). They provide counseling, jobs, skill training, run a donation center, and provide transitional housing.

“This organization is incredible,” said Tania Tomyn. “It positively affects so many people’s lives.”

Not only does it help women, men and children that are victims of abuse, it also helps communities during crisis. After Hurricane Irma, WCSC delivered supplies to the elderly and the Boys and Girls Club, as well as provided temporary housing to those in need at the shelter. Tania Tomyn served on the board of the St. Croix Women’s Coalition in the past. Tania’s husband Aaron Smith of Orange County California is also a supporter of WCSC and participated in some of their events like their annual run which is an amazing community event providing donations and awareness. During her recent trip, Tania Tomyn met with Clema Lewis, Executive Director of WCSC, to make a donation and talk about how RetroLock is bringing awareness to their cause. Clema Lewis is an extraordinary person and great leader that has devoted her life to this organization and cause.

Tania Tomyn is the CEO of an Interior Finish business operating in Orange, California. RetroLock Corporation specializes in interior finish solutions such as doors, frames, hardware, millwork, specialty metals, and finish carpentry and installation. Tania Tomyn’s team is fully aware of the issues in St. Croix and supports WCSC in reaching their goals. For more information, please visit:

Travel Guru, Patrick Kearney’s Favorite Destination to Date

Patrick D. Kearney

WILMETTE, CT, UNITED STATES, June 19, 2019 / — FRENCH POLYNESIAN—Because of Patrick D. Kearney’s epic traveling history, numerous people ask him where the best place he has ever visited on earth is? What is his response? Patrick Kearney explains, “I’ve been to some pretty amazing places, so narrowing it down should be difficult, but it’s not. I’m a warm weather, water-based, beach loving guy, and my ultimate destination is Mo’orea. There’s nothing else like it.

“There are, of course, many islands in the French Polynesian, so why do I consider Mo’orea to be the best? Well, it’s all about the island itself. With a picturesque view of jagged, green, volcanic mountains, Mo’orea has one of the largest coral reef ecosystems that can be enjoyed from the water, glass-bottom boat or by simply just overlooking the water from above. From the clear, clean water to the plethora of sea life and mountainous views that line the crystal blue waters are the reason that so many people like myself agree that Moorea is paradise on earth.”

Patrick Kearney continued, “Staying in the private overwater bungalow was a dream come true. My bungalow had a large window in the floor, which showcased schools of fish daily and the spotlight in the water allowed me to see gorgeous sea life at night as well. The long walkways to the bungalow were peaceful and a pleasure to stop and see additional vantage points throughout the resort. Each bungalow offers a large private deck that overlooks the water from which you can jump in and swim with the fish anytime you desire. With detailed Polynesian décor, a soaking tub and the best room service, where the wait staff literally canoes up to your private deck with world-class cuisine, the amenities were extraordinary.

“Of course, there is a French theme to much of the cuisine and market places. I ate my fill of French wine and cheese along with local island fare. You can rent a small electric car, enjoy private tours as well and visit a pineapple farm, magic mountain, and numerous natural parks and gardens, but for the majority of your trip, you should plan on being in the water.”

Mother's Child – The Nightmare Discovery of Mitochondrial Disease

A fictional retelling, of the factual events, of what it means for a family accused of child abuse.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED_STATES, June 19, 2019 / — Mother’s Child, by author and publisher Michael Conant, explores the challenges of a family with a child with an undiagnosed disease.

After serving as the president of CureMito, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting research and awareness of mitochondrial disease, Mr. Conant planned to write a scene for one of the board member’s daughters who attended an arts high school in Pomona, CA. Further discussion turned that project idea into a one-act play. After life got in the way, and the daughter graduated from high school, the project morphed into a book. Flash forward to after four years of procrastination, a year of thinking about it, and 18 months of writing, editing, and re-writing, and Mother’s Child finally came to fruition, launching in March of this year.

“I had the book in my head for four years. It bothered me that this promise had gone unfulfilled for so long and, after launching my publishing company and working with many talented editors and authors, I found I had run out of excuses for putting it off. Finally, I found the discipline to make it happen.” Said Mr. Conant.

The novel evolves around the fictional Gallagher family and is told through the voice of June Gallagher, the mother of Ernie, a child sick with many unidentified ailments. The story opens as June becomes a reluctant hero, saving a child from a burning car that is involved in a horrific accident. That opening scene proves poignant as much of the remainder of the book focuses on June, along with the rest of her family, husband Tim and daughter Elsie, as she tries desperately to save her son Ernie from an unknown disease.

As the novel continues, we share the family’s struggles with the disease, as well as with overly ambitious family services, interfering hospital staff, and a doctor who’s ignorance of mitochondrial disease leads to unfounded accusations of child abuse. As Mr. Conant notes, “The characters may be fictional, but the story accurately represents what too many families go through when their child is diagnosed with mitochondrial disease.”
Mr. Conant adds, “I wanted the novel to be a story about a family; about a woman finding her inner strength and voice, about developing friendship from unexpected places, and about the humor of life that goes on within the struggles of having a sick child. I wanted to write a story that anyone could identify with and that would stick to their hearts – not just a book about mitochondrial disease, but about life.”

Mother’s Child is available on Amazon, B&N, Indie Bound, and most book retailers.
