“All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came.”

US president John F Kennedy speaking about Sir Frank Packer’s America’s Cup challenger Gretel at the 1962 America’s Cup dinner given by the Australian Ambassador.

Say what you will about sailing being a rich man’s sport, and put aside those visions of Buffy and Lance sipping martinis whilst peacocking in whale-and-lobster embroidered Vineyard Vines gear, because when you get right down to brass tacks, we’re talking about a sport in which amazing machines guided by amazing humans harness the winds. Real, true man-against-nature-against-man stuff.”
