1997 She was in a yard in St. Augustine, Florida
1998 March, new owner Michael REPPY, based in California
1999 Michael Reppy: "I purchased Thursday’s Child in St Augustine, Florida, and we sailed her back through the Panama Canal to San Diego, where we did a complete one year re-fit, which included: installed Yanmar engine, installed new mainsheet track, complete re-wiring and new electronics and autopilots installed, a new paint job done, with whale graphics by native British Columbian artist William Wasden. Later, a new rudder was built, a bow sprit added to carry roller furling genneker, solar panels and wind generator installed, and all new sails purchased, ballast added to keel bulb, and additional water ballast tanks added.", from http://dolphinspirit.org/thursdayschild.html
2000 Los Angeles-Hawaï,
singlehanded, Michael REPPY
Michael Reppy: "By the spring of 2000, Thursday’s Child was ready for my second record run to Japan. This attempt ended in Honolulu with a broken rudder, occurring on the first night out in a collision with whales along the California coast. I had the rudder repaired in Honolulu and returned to San Francisco to prepare for another go at the record. More details are online."

2001 29 April, Los Angeles-Japon,
singlehanded: DNF, Michael
Michael Reppy: "On April 29, 2001 I sailed out under the Golden Gate Bridge with Thursday’s Child on my third attempt at the Trans-Pacific record. The first week was fast and we were ahead of record time, but a miscalculation by my weather routers put us in a wind hole in the Pacific High for 1 _ days. But we caught back up, weathered a gale, and still had a chance at the record until we got caught in light winds and adverse currents approaching Tokyo Bay. On day 36, having missed the record, I decided to retire from racing, and motored into Misaki. More details are online."

December, Sale/Donation of Thursday’s Child,
Michael Reppy: "I readied Thursday’s Child for a fourth attempt at the record, but had surgery for torn knee cartilage, and postponed the sail. A recurrence of the cartilage tear and another surgery put off the sail another year. I continued to plan for the sail, but my father became seriously ill and died, so another year past. By now, I realized that Thursday’s Child was too demanding a boat for me to single-hand at a high level. I had turned 60 years old and still had knee and other joint pains—I needed a smaller, faster boat, easier to handle for the solo record run. I began searching for another racing trimaran for the job. In December 2005, I made a sale/donation of Thursday’s Child to the Way to Happiness Foundation. Thursday’s Child would become a sail training boat for youngsters to learn sailing and life lessons at sea - a good use for the venerable old racer.
