    let me explain...

    When it comes the the Golden Globe I think I agree, probably harder these days. 50 years ago nobody actually knew if it was possible, now that it has been proven doable it adds another mental challenge into the equation. Five decades ago if a competitor pulled out it was a bloody shame but everyone understood, they were attempting something that might not be achievable. Now they will have just failed and to have that looming over you could be a hard thing to deal with. Also public opinions of a skipper have changed. I reckon that less people will celebrate someone who goes down stairs, shuts the hatch and finishes off the brandy when a storm hits. Still, easy to say from my sofa. Either way it should make some good stories!
