This Guy is an absolute Legend, now doing the Route de Rhum at 75 on his open 60.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Very cool, looks like we will have to go round again.
Wonder if he will bring the 60 or maybe commission a new Elliot?

He thought he would charter something here but you never know with him, a open 60 would be perfect I'd think.

i saw Danaide up on the hard at Pier 21..... do the new owners have her out for upgrades ?
Oracle will most likely be up for RNI in 2017 too.... when do the entries open ?

Priorities from most to least important were: Safety, speed compared to the fleet, ease of use/reliability of boat, budget, reliability of charter company, simplicity of equipment and sailing comfort. These are quite similar to the priorities we assigned.
The average expected to pay for a week's racing was $US7,500. The average prepared to pay was $6,600. This is higher than we expected to charge.
