Photo taken on my camera by Pete Goss MBE, Legion d'Honneur the Training Skipper for the Race, a fantastically skilled sailor and one of the nicest, most patient, people you could ever wish to meet.

For a full crew member's view of the race  read the book by Alan Sears, seen in the bottom right of the photo above, entitled "Uphill All the Way: Crew Member's Inside Story of the BT Global Challenge"
