Volvo: 20 kts - fire hose planing

After sailing east for seven days out of Sanyo, China, the Volvo fleet turned south.  With 3,000 miles to go to Auckland, NZ, the fleet is averaging 500 nm/day.  As this video shows life for a bowman is like standing in front of a fire hose.  But they're sailors, so they're happy.
