Sounds similar to the Disney flick a few years back, when they took a crew that ave about 18 or there abouts, and sent them on the race from CA to Maui. Pac Cup?

Personally at times, could be a good thing, if coached ahead of time etc. Similar to the different (US) football bowl games for college srs to show there stuff to the recruits before draft day. If races like this occur upon occasion, then the BIGGER race crews will see who of the younger set might be willing to do long races like this, find out who to recruit etc. In the end, frankly from the PRO end of the sport, a very good thing. Yes it will be a media blitz, but tell me, what other sport with equal events is NOT a media blitz?
