Cyclone Errol

Nasa’s take on Errol and Cyclone Errol

www.nasa.gov…

“NASA Sees Remnants of A Once-Swashbuckling Cyclone Errol in So. Indian Ocean”

“Unlike the famous Hollywood actor of days gone by the remnants of cyclone Errol are no longer making a lot of noise in the Southern Indian Ocean. In fact, NASA satellite data reveals that wind shear has taken its toll on the center of the storm’s circulation, despite some improved convection.”

“Errol Flynn was an actor in the 1930s and 40s known for his swashbuckling film roles in movies like Captain Blood and Robin Hood. Cyclone Errol was known for its rains and wind in northern Western Australia and then in Indonesia’s West Timor.”

The History of Scripps

02 Sep

www.sandiegouniontribune.com…

“[Carl] Hubbs arrived in La Jolla in 1944, when Scripps was a ghost town because so many people had left to help with the war effort. There wasn’t a lot of money to collect or study fish.

But opportunities arose, and one of them came from an unexpected source: Actor Errol Flynn.

In 1946, Flynn notified Scripps that he planned to sail his schooner from San Diego to Acapulco and that he was willing to take a scientist with him. Hubbs quickly stepped forward and ended up collecting a great number of specimens.”

Errol’s Captain?

01 Sep

One Beveridge Too Many?

From the Daily Mail:

“Mr Cooper is a survivor of the infamous Marques disaster that left 19 drowned in 1984.”

“Speaking to the Times, Mr Cooper, a veteran ocean sailor who once captained a ship for Hollywood film star Errol Flynn, continued: ‘We realised the boat was not sinking and that the best place to be was on board. We sat it out until the waves pushed us far enough onto the reef to be away from the breakers.”

[I believe this is likely a misstatement by the Daily Mail, not by Mr. Cooper, who likely said he was captain for one of Errol’s (former) ships, not for Errol himself.]
