My brother was member of a ARC crew that finished just yesterday at Santa Lucia, and it was indeeed a joy to behold!!! what a race! my brothers boat was not at the competitive category, because it was a Bavaria (check it out here: http://www.hellenicyachts.com ), but it was a trementous feeling to race 2.700 nautical miles competing one other. All crew members tested their abilities to the point of collapse. i'm looking forward for next years ARC2012!!!
