Buying the DVD might be a good option as well, I assume it contains a lot of bonus material :
Completed? You're not done, are you? It will go 70 knots. And you've gotta give that poor guy with the RC airplane another shot. It must be humiliating, beaten by a sailboat and all.To be honest... half my mind was still going "65 f*****g knots... hell yeah!!!". The fact that we had just successfully completed the whole Sailrocket thing by continually pushing on was obviously on my mind.
3rd vote.Thanks Paul, as always for showing up, and answering questions. I enjoyed the show a lot, if sorry for some of the editorial decisions. Of course I'd really like to see a Sailrocket documentary. Kickstarter?
The food does need some explaining. The original idea was that we would all eat the original food. It needs to be mentioned that Shackleton and his men... for the purpose of this trip, were relatively well equipped with food and starving was not an issue. Actually cooking and keeping it down might have been the bigger problem. We aimed to have the same food and quantities that they took. Some of the provisioning seemed quite odd i.e. 47kg of 'nut-food'? That's a hell of a lot of nougat... but we took it. One of their favoured long-life, expedition foods was something called 'Pemmican' or 'Hoosh'. It's basically half fat and half meat product. Like a very fatty ground-up biltong. It's high in both fat and protein.Larso, can you share some info about the food you took on board and eaten during the crossing? I remember you guys said it was difficult to imagine to eat that stuff for 15 days. What were you guys eating? made from what? was it custom prepared? and how your body coped with the, obviously, different food?
Thanks alot & cheers,
