Stephen Colbert to Sail Into the Bermuda Triangle Today

Stephen Colbert is at it again.

He won’t take defeat lying down.

What is he up to now?

He’s sailing into the Bermuda Triangle.

Colbert, who says he’s an avid sailor, but not really, is once again racing in a sailing regatta from Charleston South Carolina to Bermuda today.

He has even been named honorary Captain of the 65 foot sailing ship, and plans to guide her the entire 1,000 miles into the Bermuda Triangle.

But this is not the first time Colbert has made this journey.

In 2005 he tried and failed, his team came in last place – four days behind the lead boat. He says everything broke down including the diesel engines, radios, sails, and even the two bathrooms.

That leads to an obvious question…..

But this time he is taking it more seriously, and has teamed with Audi and a twelve man crew to pull off this truly patriotic event.

The crew will sail the U.S.S. “Audi”, complete with a gigantic picture of Colbert on the sail, in hopes of winning this year’s event.

Stephen, who grew up in a sailing town in Charleston South Carolina, says he couldn’t sail as a child because he is missing an eardrum in one ear and it lets water in – and that’s bad he says.

Colbert will leave Charleston Harbor on May 21 and hopefully reach Bermuda in about 4 days - unless the end of the world comes first.

"There is a cult out there that believes the world is coming to an end on May 21, so that's one of the reasons I wanted to be out in the ocean. I'll have nothing above me and I'll fly straight up."

Good luck Mr. Colbert, and if we miss the rapture we’ll see you next week!

God Speed.
