Re: Teaser from Vendee Globe

Great find DeepFrz a top promotional video for an exciting Race.

I'm sure there are members on here who have experienced the thrill of the open Ocean, maybe also single-handed. Not to discredit the courage it must take but I wish the technology had been around when I was younger I may have tried something similar. The bones and joints wouldn't be up to that now though ha ha.
I know I have had a moan in the past about various multinationals and the money they take from us, but if it wasn't for their backing I wonder how many entrants there would be?. Interesting to find out how much it would cost a "backer" to fund the whole circuit I must go and google it.
I watched a few of the other promo's too worth a look.

Stay safe out there Tim
