Out with the Old?
In a move that seems suspiciously early in the game to make, Puma is replacing 52 year old Jerry Kirby and 48 year old Jonathon McKee with 27 year old Shannon Falcone and 44 year old Robbie Naismith. Saving 29 years of age in the process, it would seem that maybe 52 and 48 are a bit on the old side for a VOR non-skipper crew position? And isn’t the idea to try to do the race with the original crew? Or maybe some of these guys simply aren’t as tough as they should be for a race like this?
