No good arguments

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston after losing his wind instrument: - You might consider a withdrawal in any other race but not in the Velux 5 Oceans as you can never tell what is going to happen next. This is such a trial of the stamina of both boat and sailor through the most inhospitable ocean of the world that you know it must be right to press on if you possibly can because if you are having problems, the chances are your contestants are, or will have problems as well, and that can balance things out. It pays to stay in this game if at all possible, regardless of how uncompetitive you might become for a while, because the next stop gives the chance to patch things up and re-start on a more even basis.

The other explanation for not whit drawing would be: He is the owner of the Velux 5 Oceans, two of the three competitive sailors has already whit drawn and yet another would leave only four boats on the race course.

And what about Knox-Johnstons endless complaints about the lack off whiskey? I though we where trying to promote a sport – not a round the world lonesome drinking party. The good old day in ocean racing should be long gone. Honestly.
