DALE OF A TIME
Motor Boat & Yachting|April 2021
After an agonising wait, Dominic Barrett finally takes delivery of his brand new Dale 28

Before COVID-19 reared its ugly head, I had imagined taking delivery of my new Dale 28 Cunjic in late February last year and spending many months on the water getting to know her as thoroughly as possible. The travel restrictions we faced in Wales were, however, broader and more long-lasting than in other parts of the UK, with Cardiff in lockdown until July 6.

Nervous, anxious, excited and maybe even a little delirious at the prospect of tasting new-found freedom, I raced to Milford Haven at the crack of dawn on the day restrictions were eased in time to meet Mike Reynolds of Dale Sailing at 9am for the handover. There was no time to waste!

BRAD ROWE IFBB Pro and Trainer to the Stars!

Success in bodybuilding is often assumed to correlate with contest wins and high finishes at the Mr. Olympia and Arnold Classic. Yet there are many other avenues available today, some far more lucrative than relying on prize money or even supplement contracts. One man who exemplifies the level of success possible beyond the stage is Brad Rowe. Though he was no slouch on stage, he gained far more visibility appearing in national commercials for companies like GoDaddy, Coca-Cola, Kia, Taco Bell and Dannon Oikos, some of which aired during Super Bowls. More recently, Brad’s prominence as an elite personal trainer got a major boost when Mike Tyson hired him to be his full-time strength and conditioning coach, training him for his 2020 comeback fight at age 54 with Roy Jones Jr. I spoke with fellow native New Englander Brad about why he stepped away from competing, how he became part of Mike Tyson’s training camp, and his major project that stands to make him one of the biggest players in the growing field of anti-aging and cutting-edge athletic performance.
