    Next VOR on IMOCAs?

    Capt. Jack...I'm impressed. Very few even know that the Li cells available to the public are typically not the best ones. FWIW, Genasun bailed out of the Li battery biz a few years ago, when the consistency of even CALB cells went downhill.

    Skerry Cruisers

    Another one, on the way out in the same race. Keel was modified later, for the 96 SH Transpac

    Skerry Cruisers

    Modified 30sq "Rumbleseat" in 94 DH Farallones race off NorCal coast. A very wet ride, incredibly fun. My crew was longtime friend Hans Kaufmann.

    Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    Giant boat, tiny house...makes perfect sense to me.

    Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    This trip is simply...astounding. A few years ago, if someone told me the solo RTW record would be even TC's time, I'd have laughed at them. Now, what FG is doing...wow.
  6. I will try to make this...have to sort out schedules but is something I really want to see.

    Vendee Globe 2016?

    Damn...I shouldn't watch these promo/celebratory VG videos. Makes me desire to go again... But I know better, once was enough for me. What a great race this last edition was. So many epic stories.

    No kidding...Wish we could send him more wind. It's painful to know he's almost starving out there.

    Yes, Rich is incredibly modest. He deserves all the respect we can give him. And he speaks way more French than I ever learned...;-)

    Rich had a great group, led by Joff Brown (who prepped Dee Caffari), and Brian Harris' team from Maine Yacht Center, and others. I'm proud to have supplied (through OceanPlanet Energy) batteries, solar, monitoring, and general help where I could. Really proud of the whole job Rich has done; prep, execution, the whole thing. Impressive.

    Rich has done a fantastic job! Years of preparation & planning have paid off with a great race. And at 66 years old...
