Kiwi sailors doing it in 31 degrees for their Nationals.

The gods of the wind only allowed two days of racing, but it was enough to decide the season winners. And with temperatures as high as 31°C .

That's 31 degrees in Freedom units, right? Am I right?.. Wink

Fraid not. 87 in Freedom degrees. However, it was windy. With wind chill factor, I imagine it didn't feel like a degree over 80. Those guys were suffering. Hope they had good sunscreen.

There is no off season.

I think AJ works for Buzzfeed. That was a pretty "click-baity" headline. He has been chastised.

You definitely need sunscreen in NZ with hole in the ozone down there. Princess fried herself silly when she was down there despite her Hellenic genetics.
