To save the oceans (A checklist)

  1. Be heir to a vast fortune
  2. Be named David
  3. Get a “green” boat
  4. Sail around the world to promote education and awareness about dismal ocean health
  5. Remind everyone you’re on a boat, Mother Earth, don’t you ever forget!
  6. Challenge other heir David sailing around world in support of oceans to a duel of boat awesomeness. Or heir apparent hotness.
