  • Not a sailor, this video really makes me want to find out more about the adventures of these remarkable sportsmen and women. Too bad that mainstream media (in the UK at least) fail to bring this sport to a wider audience. Sailing, in all its forms, can inspire and educate us all. Team building, leadership, endurance, technology, craftsmanship. It's all there.

  • The admission that women were at a disadvantage by a lack of muscle mass compared with men is a telling one. Its just a fact , not a admission of being less capable in every other way - why is this so hard to talk about ?

Anyone who wants to learn more about it should read “Walk on Water” by Mark Rhulman. A fascinating book. Thanks again, and fair winds!
