Not my sort of sailing but the total team - design & construction (all sorts of parts, not just hull), route planning, team development . . . Remarkable.

Incroyable!

Congratulations to the entire team. To set such a goal, work towards it, and accomplish what they set out to do? Very impressive.

Well... They REALLY took 41 days, but then they remembered they had not compensated for the time differences, so it was actually 40 after all! Pay up...

I think that's how that went, right? ;)

My buddy gave me a DVD of a VOR. Not the same, but sort of the same, eh? That video is enough heart attack for a sissy like me.


Peace,
