Check out Pete Goss' site and watch the video.
Peter Goss and his crew of three are sailing from Cornwall to Australia onboard a 37 foot Cornish fishing boat.
This is "Mystery" sailing in the Southern Ocean at the beginning of a storm.
The sound is icy rain striking the camera and boat deck.
One of the crew gets a broken leg immediately after filming. Incredible video!
I have been in similar seas, but never in that cold of temperatures. Worst I have ever been was 45 knots off the coast of Mauretania.
The Southern Ocean is something I look forward to have sailed and returned from. There is no land masses to slow up the winds or the "fetch", which is wind driven seas.
Here is something that is more like it.
Off of Madeira, a Portuguese island group West of the Mainland.
Have a fun Friday evening!
