    Not as bad as people make it out to be, but going up and down three times in an afternoon is a workout! Er... I may have been holding on too tight. It was slippery in the rain. Installing a new roller furler.

    Heck, the old timers on the tall ships used to do it every day. They must have had some awesome builds. I need a hot bath and a massage.

    No way. Just looking at the pics is giving me nausea.

    Went up for the first time on one of the clipper boats from the last race. Safe and stable because we were in port. Great view of Cowes from aloft. One of many new experiences during level 1 training.
