When I sailed my sailboat across the Atlantic, I went straight west out of the English Channel, incurring many hundreds of miles of more crossing for the very reason you see in that video, shoaling seas up to a coast that is open to the ocean are a killer.... and I don't mean figuratively. Hal
This was the easy stuff. Hal. This was last year on the Volvo, that was considered a Bunny Run.
The 1997 Volvo was a horror show, 70 knot howlers, with 100 knot puffs down in the Southern Latitudes, BIG swells, BIG chop. WHY THE HECK DID I DO THIS kinda stuff. Woof !!
Nous n'avons pas peur! Vive la liberté! Moi aussi je suis Charlie!
