Re: Vendee Globe

Those guys (and girls) are totally nuts. They're also in a COMPLETELY different sailing class to the rest of us. They keep spinnakers up 24/7 through gale force winds to keep their BOAT SPEED >30knots and they do it single handed. The race itself is more like circumnavigating Antarctica than circumnavigating the globe.

This book, about the Vendee Globe, was an awesome read:
