NBC is dialing up for Ted Turner's special. Interesting choice.
I thought this was pretty interesting
the most interesting part was hearing about North and Doyle screwing over turner and not willing to build him new sails over a few months of competing - he got slower and his competitors got new sails
I thought that was interesting too - BTW, Doyle was the guy on Turner's crew that saved the day by re-cutting their own sails. It was North and Hood that wouldn't sell him sails....I would like to hear more details about how that transpired. I bet there is a lot more to that story than they had time to tell.
And Doyle had been working for Hood, and they were sailing on Hood's old boat!
I'm sure there was a TON more info that they didn't have time for. For instance, how did Turner connect with Jobson in the first place?
