I've mention in class that I used to sail offshore.  I loved it.  The Volvo round the world race began ans the Whitbread Round the World race.  I've included a documentary about the most recent event.  The 2011-2012 race.  If you have an hour or so, its a fantastic video.   Sailing, especially the VRtW race, incorporates all of the aspects of climate, weather and physical processes we are discussing in class.  Its also just plain cool to watch!

I am not making this an assignment. I just think many of you will find it interesting.  If you do watch, listen for the many references to weather, location, the routes the boats take, etc....

Let me know what you guys think.
