Well heck, he's already got a jet that can cross the ocean much faster. What's the point? Demonstrate that the deepest checkbook wins?

Take your basic sailing dinghy and blow it up x10. Then put on triple the crew a real boat takes just so you have movable ballast.

Yawn.

"Despite his extraordinary sailing achievements, three time Olympic gold medallist Ainslie has never sailed across the Atlantic before. "

Should he be "BILLED" if the momey switch gets pushed???? He has no blue water experence and obously was talked into doing this by somebody that just wanted his credentals.....Is he a Marine to?

apoligizes for venting but i feal better...
