Default Who's up for a N. Atlantic run???

I shot this vid on the north coast of Ireland. These are 6 to 8's about 14 seconds apart. So for those of you with the big boats, I have this question. Would you run in this? And about how fast could you go? I stayed here for a good while and daydreamed of being in that 50' triple engine yellow Cig I saw at the Miami boat show running that water. And was thinking, "what a fricken rush that would be!"

In the old days....sounds trite sorry.....but the races were billed by Red Crise the race promoter as only for the strong and stronghearted, anyone weak should not apply

Here is shot of open ocean racing in a 38 foot Bertram
