Hei guys have you followed the Banque Populaire attempt on the world record circumnavigation?
They have been doing a fantastic job and have a big advance over the last record: Great boat, great sailors, great sailing
30/35/40 K wind, 35/40K speed
Look at the end of the movie when the guy got the water full on his face (and camera). What would be the apparent wind? No wonder they use that kind of motorcycle helmet
I know that water hitting the face at 35/40 K can be painful. I wonder at what speed they are hit by that water?
