Re: Puma Sailing's MAR MOSTRO blog of Volvo (circumnavigation) Race
Great web site with some wonderful photos, but dang, what a thing to have to blog about. 'Yeah, we were doing great until we dropped the rig'. Actually, I have been there on a Star - twice. But my tow to the club was a lot shorter and the cost to get going again was considerably less than what these guys have to deal with.
The 60-foot IOR boat I used to sail on shook her rig out of the boat in a lumpy Gulf Stream but I wasn't on her then. 110' rig falling. Must have been a heck of a sight.
