It is normal that you or me would not be able to race or even sail a Ac72 without endanger ourselves and others.
That is not the point I was trying to make. The point I was trying to make is that these guys and gals are the best and I respect and admire that. They are very brave and have a huge amount of skill and strength. I just hope that are not sailing on "defective" equipment or in conditions the equipment is not capable of.
