The Fastnet sailor who headed straight for some porn


What do you dream about when you finish a long, hard race? Cold beer? Hot shower? Steak and chips?

Or something a bit more earthy?

One Fastnet sailor came into the media centre yesterday to use the computers and spurned the race viewer and event photos to go straight to his email. He then clicked on all the pornography links and had a leisurely, even studied, browse in full view.

It reminded me of an incident in one of the Global Challenge races, when one crew was found to be using the satellite comms to download porn while racing across the Southern Ocean.

Maybe it’s a heavy weather thing?
