Well I was distracted and just recently remembered that there was a big race going on. All I see are 5 boats and they are four 60s with one 50, all extreme racers with logos everywhere.
This is probably gonna be a dumb question but where are the 40 footer, home grown teams? Is there a new regulation?
In the last "Around Alone" I was rooting for others at first but I grew to like that crazy Canadian Mountie. The home grown efforts might not do 300 mile days but they make me feel closer to the race.
Those grand fresh-water seas of ours - Erie, and Ontario, and Huron, and Superior, and Michigan, - possess an ocean-like expansiveness...They contain round archipelagoes of romantic isles...they have heard the fleet thunderings of naval victories...they know what shipwrecks are, for out of sight of land, however inland, they have drowned full many a midnight ship with all its shrieking crew. --from Moby Dick
