Prince climber

Before the start of the first Volvo Ocean Race, which went on October 4 inAlicante, Prince Carl Philippe of Sweden climbed the 30-metre mast of the VO65 boat of the Dongfeng race team. At that time, the monotype was running at a 20-degree roll in 15-knot winds. To illustrate: if six giraffes are stacked on top of each other, the height of this "pyramid" is approximately equal to the height of VO65's mast. At the top, the prince has left a message for the brave. Guess what he wrote in it? We like the Facebook user's guess: "The top is here!"
