Legendary Sailor and philanthropist Sir Durward Knowles hosted a book signing over the weekend to promote his latest body of work entitled "Captain of Industry". On Friday, it was held at the South East Rotary and at Montague Gardens on Saturday.
Knowles won two Olympic gold medals for The Bahamas. The first medal came in 1956 with his one-man crew of Cecil Cooke and then again In 1964 when Sir Durward won the second in Tokyo, Japan.
His first book was titled "Driven". The book was published in 1992 and in it Sir Durward touched on a lighter side of his personality, referring to himself as a jovial and quick-thinking "prankster".
In Driven he revealed how the first boat he purchased was a dilapidated wreck, and in order to raise money to repair the boat, Knowles named the boat "Church", and because of the name he was able to go around requesting donations for the repair of the Church. These and other powerful stories are told in vivid detail in his new book.
On Saturday several of the "living knights" came to support Knowles and take photos with the living legend. Sir Geoffrey Johnstone, Sir Orville Turnquest and Sir Arlington Butler all showed up.
The book signings have been organized by Sheila Bethel and Janet Johnson, and are expected to continue through the next few weeks at Government House, Logos Book Store and several other places.
In addition to the book signing, the government through the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture, along with the Bahamas Olympic Committee, will plan a number of events to honor Sir Durward and the late Cooke.
Many individuals, companies and organizations will be given an opportunity to immortalize their names with Sir Durward in a Lifetime Commemorative Book that is being published through the ministry to mark the occasion of Sir Durward winning the first gold medal. The book is expected to be out in time for the start of the independence celebrations. Sir Durward will be honored during those celebrations as well.
In the meantime, Sir Durward's second book is now available at participating bookstores, or by calling his office to request a copy.

NASSAU, Bahamas -- Bamboo Town MP Branville McCartney last night called on Bahamians to "redefine the possible" before unveiling the first group of candidates who will run on the ticket of the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) in the next general election.
The DNA introduced 10 of its 41 candidates, which include three young candidates, whose ages range between 28 and 38, according to party Chairman Mark Humes. The candidates named were Kelphene Cunningham (Garden Hills); Floyd Armbrister (Exuma); Sammy Poitier (Sammy Star) (South Beach); Farrel Goff (Clifton); Ben Albury (Montague); Adrian LaRoda (MICAL); Roscoe Thompson (South Abaco); Charlene Paul (Elizabeth) and Alfred Poitier (Kennedy). McCartney -- the party's leader -- intends to run again for Bamboo Town.
The DNA was unveiled before more than 1,000 people at the Wyndham Nassau Resort on Cable Beach.
McCartney, a former minister in the cabinet of Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham, outlined his party's vision for the country. McCartney painted a picture of a utopian Bahamian society that would be created by his party replete with litter free roads, well-landscaped gardens, stunning architecture, sidewalk cafes and rows of theatres for playwrights.
"The vision of the DNA is to transform The Commonwealth of the Bahamas into a nation where Bahamian people will be esteemed as the most precious resource - above all natural and material resources - and the nurturing of our intelligence and creative brilliance will help us become a genuinely democratic, economically prosperous, and socially mobile 21st century nation," the party's mission statement states.
McCartney insisted last night that the DNA will construct a "new Bahamas," a theme he pressed into the audience throughout his opening address. And he borrowed the line of "change," which U.S. President Barack Obama used to win the seat of the highest office in the world three years ago.
