"Conrad Colman will start the Vendée Globe solo non stop round the world race Sunday safe in the knowledge that he will be able to share his incredible story with the outside world thanks to a very last minute sponsorship deal."

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.

One advantage of the race getting no mainstream media coverage -- We can actually watch it without being violated by Sky!

I agree that the foliers look awesome but seriously fragile. 

I'm rooting for Alex Thompson on Hugo Boss, serious crap happens too him and he just keeps on trying totally weird stuff. His foils are totally different to the others.

 

Also awesome work by Conrad Coleman he gets some serious cred if and when he makes the finish.  

 

Really good dock walk video on sailing anarchy which is actually well worth the 56 minutes it goes on for.
