Tough Bites In The Southern Ocean

The events of the Volvo have been showing the true talents of these men. One can not just sail the boat and man the grinders. They dig deep and do all that and have the versatility of a seamstress, engineer, builder, creative problem solver, medic and certainly forgetting a few skills.

Meanwhile they do all this under the most extreme circumstances. It was terrible news for the boys of Green Dragon who limp on with a broken boom.

The lovely il Mostro has suffered serious damage not once but twice. I've scowered and no pictures as of late but a short video bit from the boat.

Vendee Peace, for now.

Lots of reading out there for those who enjoy a good salty tale or two...cheers
