Not sure how many if any are keeping tabs on the.Volvo Round The World Yacht Race
I love ocean racing and have competed in many races around the world but never this race. Obviously I am not good enough or young enough so I watch it vicariously through their website.
Take a gander at this and tell me it is not fun and adrenaline pumping.

Or even or an hour or two. Those guys are amazing. Mark, if you competed in conditions like those in the video, my hat is off to you.

30+ years ago I did compete in conditions just like those. Hard work and sleep deprived for days on end. Could not do it now.
