I Was Fired By The Airlines. This Guide Is My Revenge!
It's so easy for me to fly for less, it's like taking candy from a helpless baby! I spend almost next to nothing on all my travels, and my jaw drops every time as I watch what others just like you are paying for your tickets.

World Farr 40s champ coming to DR
Defending world champion of the Farr 40s sailing category, Jim Richardson and his Barking Mad (USA) will be in the DR for the Rolex Farr 40 World Championship at the Casa de Campo Resort & Marina. Richardson is a three-time champion. Competing to win the tournament will be Helmut Jahn on Flash Gordon 6 (USA), Massimo Mezzaroma (Nerone), Guido Belgiorno-Nettis on Transfusion (AUS) and Wolfgang Schaefer on Struntje Light (GER). Others include Doug Douglass on Goombay Smash (USA), Alex Roepers on Plenty (USA), Alberto Rossi on Enfant
Terrible (ITA), and Lisa and Martin Hill on Este Master (AUS). The tournament is set for 21-24 April in La Romana.
Richardson, defending World Champion and Farr 40 Class President said: "We are very much looking forward to the 2010 Rolex Farr 40 Worlds at Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic. With 11 strong teams representing Italy, Germany, Australia, Monaco and the United States, we are expecting a highly competitive regatta. As evidenced by the recently concluded Miami Grand Prix Race Week, where four different boats led after each day of racing, the Class remains incredibly balanced. Our Barking Mad team knows we will have our hands full defending the Championship we won a year ago in Porto Cervo. Having scouted the venue personally, we are certain that the sailing conditions and ambience of this venue will be second to none. Great sailing, tropical weather and Casa de Campo, a spectacular five-star resort, make all the ingredients for a fantastic championship. We can't wait to get there next month!"
The schedule includes two days of warm-up on Saturday, 17 April and Sunday, 18 April. The Rolex Farr 40 World Championship racing begins on Wednesday, 21 April and finishes on Saturday, 24 April.
The Rolex Farr 40 World Championship is being organized by the Casa de Campo Yacht Club and the Farr 40 Class Association. The racing will be held in the waters off La Romana, on the south east coast of the Dominican Republic. A charity fundraising golf tournament for the competitors, on the famed Pete Dye-designed "Teeth of the Dog" golf course, will be held on Monday, 19 April. Funds raised from the tournament will be donated to Haitian earthquake relief, through Partners in Health (PIH), a Boston-based non-profit organization that has been on the ground in Haiti for over 20 years.
