in which we "participate" in the volvo ocean race
yesterday, after drew, scott songer and i ran a 10k across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge (and survived, joints intact), we went out on the derricks' big fishing boat with a bunch of folks to chase down the seven yachts competing in the 2006 volvo ocean race, as they left annapolis to sail to new york. unbelievably cool. there were a zillion other boats of all descriptions on the bay and yet we were able to get very close to the racing yachts as they flew by us, the u.s. ship "pirates of the caribbean" firmly in the lead.
