If you really want to know what sailing Phaedo3 is like you can either, rent a convertible sports car, put the top down and drive down a dirt track at 40mph... in a rain storm! or climb inside your washing machine and put it on a cold wash cycle for 4 hours.
The noise is deafening, we have to shout at each other on deck and down below. The motion is violent as we surf down waves at 34kn plus, its difficult to see the sailing instruments on the fwd beam as there is so much spray on deck, it takes 20mins for the adrenaline to die down after being on the helm for an hour. Welcome to what we onboard call tier 2 fun. It might not always be fun at the time, but when you get chance to look back on it, you cant help think it was awesome.
