Re: Canadian Olympian's trans-Atlantic trip suffers 'catastrophic capsize'
Why row if you can sail? To prove a point it can be done? To gain recognition?
Makes no sense to me...
I agree. Kind of a silly-ass stunt akin to flag-pole sitting that serves no useful purpose what-so-ever other than enabling one to say one's done it, if so.
