Mark Dusseault is amazing. Mark volunteered to organize a media day at the Gorge Rowing club in Victoria and to say he did a fantastic job would be an understatement.

Pat Lor and I arrived at the Gorge at 9:00 am and it was pretty well non-stop interviews, talking with the public and demos until 4:00 pm. The afternoon was spent with a crew from Discovery Channel who are filming a follow-up segment for Daily Planet.

Thanks to Marty and the great guys from the Gorge Rowing and Paddling center for letting us host the event at their facility in the Victoria harbor.

The story got picked up by the CP news wire feed and the stories are just now being published. Here are a few that were published today:

Victoria Times Colonist
Canadian Press
Prince George Citizen
Yahoo News
CBC news
Calgary Sun

Here are some more photos from the sea trials in Tofino:

I am eating my dehydrated meal in the cockpit of WiTHiN while moored to the dock at Weigh West marina in Tofino. It was a VERY rough night! The video camera that you see was recording some of that miserable night for SBS TV.

Here is my view from the video viewing system mounted on the top deck of WiTHiN
