Transpac's 2-man crews gain ground

News article about the Transpac race.

"Of course, that is an exaggeration, but with four-hour shifts divvied up so one man sails while another sleeps, it has some truth. Double-handed sailors also must be well-versed in all sailor's duties, from navigating to cooking, to make it possible to sail. Because the weight is much less than a full crew, they typically have slow starts until the boats reach heavier wind."
