Vendee Globe Starts Tomorrow

In addition to Fred's races this weekend, the Vendee Globe is starting in just under 17 hours:

Vendée Globe

In particular, I look forward to following Mike Golding and Dee Caffari. In our sails on the Solent and the Channel, we've seen Pindar



and the Hugo Boss boat in person.



Remarkable machines.

Indeed - and we are cheering Canadian Derek Hatfield's campaign.

These are powerhouse machines - a handful for a crew, I'd imagine... to be slogging around the planet alone is amazing, admirable, inspiring, and slightly crazy .
