First off any member of a professional sailing crew would be a pretty cool gig. Hanging off the sides of a racing boat feeling like you’re going Mach One because of the wind flying in your face! I mean come on! Who wouldn’t love that?!?
Ok well I know a few folks…namely the ones who get seasick on a cruise ship going 5mph in the calm seas of the Bahamas. But other than them…for adrenaline junkies this ranks up there!
Having grown up on boats, this is one job here that’s part of the crew I always looked at with admiration. These guys literally look like they are hanging on to huge pieces of canvas while the wind whips and lifts the boat off the water! Whoa! They have their feet off the boat and are just hanging there! Don’t fly away dude!
