How about this for a totally mad skipper's presentation?

Here’s a glimpse of the skipper’s presentation for the Barcelona World Race – I rushed out with my wee digital stills camera, so apologies for it being a bit on the low res side.

I was expecting all the skippers to be lined up on stage and asked a few lame questions. I was not expecting this: a ghost ship, strange giant mannequins hailing each other, a man ‘walking’ round the earth and people in wetsuits doing a dance in the rigging.

Totally bizarre, and totally inspired. If there were any city councillors here from Plymouth I wonder if they were weeping into their glasses of Estrella Damm?
