misery loves company

To say Bernard Stamm had a frustrating Vendee Globe would be an understatement, but after seeing this video of multiple accidental gybes and other mayhem while he cavorted around the transom, the Swiss mountain man is lucky to be alive, much less finished the course five days ago despite the DSQ.  Fast forward to around 0:54 if you’re in a rush.

More crazy stuff from the craziest race there is…don’t believe us?  How about a little Tanguy Lamotte doing underwater basket weaving and McGyvering up a new bilge pump?  Meanwhile, he’s just a few days out and has added 160,000 friends to the Initiatives-Coeur Facebook page.  That is 13 children whose lives Tanguy and his fans have saved thus far.  Still a bit to go – please go LIKE HIS PAGE to save some more lives.

Just a few more days to go before this one is in the books, and the ultra-marathon Vendee Globe thread continues to stay interesting…
