    I challenge anyone to watch that video with a dry eye. He managed to combine being a perfect gentleman with massively competitive drive and spirit -the perfect sportsman. Lets hope the next generation of superstars will be inspired by his example. Happy days Magnus

    The jammer is called the "constrictor" and was developed by French rigger Julien Barnet. His patent is currently marketed/ under development by Cousin ropes I believe

    Well spotted. No, Cardiff is already scheduled for the race after. Double the time to get a Welsh entry together for it...

    Excellent article James and looking forward to the Daily Sail's built up to the AC. Was 1983 really a victory based on straight-line speed? (discuss)

    Well they made it....Bravo.... a terrific climb it must have been...due respect to the memory of Shacleton and his must have given many nature and adventure lovers much pleasure to read the story... keep them coming dailysail....thanks..peter carp

    Great article!  A really good look into Open 60 SOA technology.  How about one on the systems of choice for navigation/communication?

    An incredible story which I very much enjoyed to read...I congratulate all who participated in the sea crossing with their effort. It must have been very tough conditions at times and when you think how the original members of the Shackleton party endured , survived and succeeded, then one can only say "hat-off"... I do hope that the climbing party will arrive at their destination although, according the the latest news, same is still doubtful..Anyhow, the effort is made...It shows again that at times nature is stronger than man's efforts to conquere same, and this must be especially true in the Antarctic of which South Georgia surely is part of...thanks for letting me share, Peter Carp in Switzerland

    note: if some of the members of this expedition finally get to Grytviken and visit Shackleton's grave, they should look into the lovely little Norwegian church there and say a prayer in memory to all who who lived and died there...I have visited there early l996, it is a very special place...which made a deep impression on me........
