There are adrenaline junkies, and then, there are Adrenaline Junkies. These folks take that old biscuit, "Living Close To The Edge" to a whole new level.

"Overcoming fears, they step off into thin air and fly like birds, hurtling at impossible speeds and gliding across beautiful landscapes. A startling insight into the revolutionary sport that brings the dream of human flight alive."

How politically incorrect of you, Joe. Shouldn't it be Crew Overboard?
F that! I'm sick of walking on eggshells.

Sorry for the ride around the lake. Now back to our story.
Andrew Taylor was flung overboard while changing a sail on the foredeck of Derry~Londonderry~Doire' during Race 10 of the Clipper Round the World RaceHis swim occurred midway between Qingdao, China, and San Francisco. Luckily for Andrew, he was wearing a drysuit and PFD. His recovery from the messy waters of the North Pacific was no mean feat. Poor Andrew spent about an hour and a half in the water. He was quite happy to be pulled back aboard to the safety of the boat. His skipper said, "...whilst clearly shocked, he is quite happy to be alive I think!" Ya think!

Yes boys and girls, the sea is not for the faint of heart. To quote the Swiss Boy Scout handbook, "Allzeit bereit!"

"He was a big boy — his head was huge," said local photographer Sharon Scoble, who snapped the incredible images of the surfing reptile.
