Dave Clarke, now in his mid forties; is recovering from rowing solo across the Atlantic earlier this year. Dave's epic adventure puts him in the Guinness book of records as the first to have sailed and then rowed this route solo. Visit www.daveclarkesolo.com to see details of the authors latest project.
An epic and inspiring story of an ordinary bloke with a passion for adventure who attempts to row 3,235 miles across the Atlantic. Achieving this would make him the only person to sail and row the Atlantic solo. With candid and sometimes humorous writing you really feel you are on Dave’s shoulder as you follow the adventure from first inception to the challenges he faced re-integrating himself into normal life. A testament to what is possible if you are determined enough to follow your dreams.
An inspiring book in many ways, Dave Clarke’s story of sailing across the Atlantic in a renovated 18 foot yacht is a joy to read. This book is about a chap with a lot of determination and enthusiasm who wanted to make his dream a reality and was not going to keep putting it off with excuses that could be there for years to come. Clarke is an ordinary bloke fulfilling an extraordinary dream and tells his tale with honesty and humour.
In 2010 the internationalfederated conferenceson Distributed Computing Te- niques (DisCoTec) took place in Amsterdam, during June 7-9. It was hosted and organized by the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica. DisCoTec conferences jointly cover the complete spectrum of distributed computing subjects ranging from theoretical foundations to formal speci?cation techniques to practical considerations. The 12th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (Coordination) focused on the design and implementation of models that allow compositional construction of large-scale concurrent and distributed systems, including both practical and foundational models, run-time systems, and related veri?cation and analysis techniques. The 10th IFIP International Conference on Distributed Applications and Interop- able Systems in particular elicited contributions on architectures, models, te- nologies and platforms for large-scale and complex distributed applications and services that are related to the latest trends for bridging the physical/virtual worlds based on ?exible and versatile service architectures and platforms. The 12th Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems and the 30th FormalTechniques for NetworkedandDistributed Systems together emphasized distributed computing models and formal speci?cation, testing and veri?cation methods. Each of the three days of the federated event began with a plenary speaker nominated by one of the conferences.
