I am always in awe and a bit envious of these sailors- solo around the world... whatever conditions we go out in, none of it even remotely approaches what they will experience. They are in a rarified strata- total respect from me!

The race should end this weekend: less than 80 days sailing around the world. Two Frenchmen are battling for the win. Third place just lost his keel but has continued sailing for days, now near the Azores.
