Volvo Leg 4 – From 22 foot waves to 22 foot boats.

I have done some cross training in sailing before; like in 1978 when I went from crewing to a fourth in the Star worlds right to crewing for a second in the 505 worlds. But I have to say that going from 30 foot waves, icebergs, snow storms, 45 knots of winds and 32 knots of boat speed TO 3 inch waves, 10 knots of wind, 4 knots of boat speed, 80 degree water and 95 boats on the starting line is biggest contrast I have had in our sport in a two week period. And yet, both were fantastic!
