I agree with Stillraining about this guy. He is obviously an experienced sailor, clearly knows how to hype the press for maximum PR, and who knows, if he finished 9th in the Vandee Globe could indeed give this uphill record a good thrashing.
It's the parents using their kids to set 'records' and putting them in danger that really gets me going.....
