anyone follow this incredible race? the boats left spain in october and will finish in ireland in july.....stops in cape town, china, new zealand, france, usa(miami)......some legs are 5 and 6,000 miles...boats are ultra light so creature comforts are few and far between, temps are wickedly varied and storms and seas are like nothing imaginable..in some oceans 'the perfect storm' is perfectly normal.....certainly the ultimate test in both human and boat endurance.....food you ask? aah freeze dried mostly as weight on these mega yachts is critical......i have friends who have done this race and the stories they tell are bone chilling...i am in awe of this race, these racers and these boats.....
