Re: red bullsh*t storm chaser hype
No question some would go out in these conditions, not knocking the sailors but red bs (RBS) management.
What gets me is all the hype about extremeness in order to sell sugar water. I mean, mix a coke and some coffee and you have RBS.
I'm questioning the whole concept of this runaway train, a little reality check if you will - you have a corporate marketing department enticing these guys with big advertising dollars and extreme hype to do something in my opinion that is pretty stupid. How much fun is it to go out in 55 mph winds in victory at sea conditions?
People risking their lives to sell sugar water. I mean what is the grand purpose here? To help mankind - no. To promote windsurfing - no. To sell a worthless product - yes.
Again, I will be very surprised if they complete any, much less three events by 30 November.
I'm calling bullshit on this whole concept. They could have a 10 month waiting period and never hold an event - uh mission, yet get all this advertising which is all they really want.
If they were serious, they could have easily made it to Hatteras. It has been obvious all week that Sunday is going to be the big day and they had plenty of time if they were really serious about this. They supposedly had everything scoped out and were ready to pounce on any of 7 locations within about 4 days.
How convenient that they get all this attention yet don't even have to put on an event.
Personally I'm glad they are not bringing their RBSh*t to Hatteras, we don't need it.
Hatteras speaks for itself.
Let's keep it real.
