Oh my god!!!
Norbert Sedlacek, the Austrian skipper of Nauticsport-Kapsch, said today that he had been through the worst winds and seas of his Vendée Globe so far just yesterday and earlier today, violent gusts to 80-90 mph, the sea just a whiteout maelstrom of spindrift and huge waves. After breaking an oil bottle inside the boat which made the entire working area of the boat a highly dangerous skating rink, he confined himself to stay outside through the worst of the storm, hand steering for a lot of the time.
