I do agree with you in terms of "limits", you are correct. However, those limits need to be discovered some how and there needs to exist crazy folks to test them.

I felt badly, you actually made me chuckle in your responce to my comment in regards to "die doing what you love, etc" . . . . I thought I was the only person who used the word "assinine". At any rate, I was intentionally going to an extreme with that remark. Basically, I do not believe that the crews/skippers of these boats are niave to what they have signed up for, nor are their family members. Furthermore, if you (that is meant to be general)are truly following this event, it comes accross that safety is first and foremost on everyone's mind. The boat handling, etc . . . the desicions, etc are all made with crew safety in mind. I have been following this event very closely and that may possibly be why I feel so comfortable where others don't.
No one wants to see people get hurt in this sport, and I think that is very clear in the VOR, even when they take it to the extreme. Finally, I agree that this event is dangerous, however, disagree in regards to blanket and say that they are "obviously unsafe".
Anways, thank you for your feedback. I may not agree, but I don't completely disagree either.
