    Don has no f$##ing empathy, no sense whatsoever. In one sentence he criticizes her for not saving material for a jurry rig and than he goes on: “she was very sick, loosing body fluids all the time from everywhere”, very classy reporting about a young brave girl in life threatening situation, indeed.

    Putting all "GGR Rules of Race" chaos aside, watching this gentleman doing what he is doing is something very special ... 5.5kn@135 .. Are You Not Entertained?!

    This is super weird. If he has this kind of footage from all boats, why it’s not being played to global audience? Are they waiting for the race to finish and interest to die..? I don’t get it.

    Transcript from the interview with Susie ... talking about the storm: Susie: “My intention was just to keep sailing and not to do what I did” ... Don: ”Yeah” Susie: ”Yeah”

    Ha! I researched that. I had no idea how controversial and dynamic topic this is! But anyway, I was still pointing ( at least partially) to the Southern Ocean and I was absolutely correct, if you consider 1928 definition ;-) ! "A draft fourth edition of Limits of Oceans and Seas was circulated to IHO member states in August 2002 (sometimes referred to as the "2000 edition" as it summarized the progress to 2000).[29] It has yet to be published due to 'areas of concern' by several countries relating to various naming issues around the world – primarily the Sea of Japan naming dispute – and there have been various changes, 60 seas were given new names, and even the name of the publication was changed.[30] A reservation had also been lodged by Australia regarding the Southern Ocean limits.[31] Effectively, the 3rd edition (which did not delineate the Southern Ocean leaving delineation to local hydrographic offices) has yet to be superseded."
