In between races, the crew did that same thing every crew does— grab a sandwich, a bottle of water, and a candy bar, and own up to their screw-ups in the previous race. And after racing was over for the day, the crew did what most of us do—make plans for happy hour. One area in which professional sailors certainly trump the rest of us is the quality of the jokes they tell. Trimmer Colin Orsini told one about Monica Lewinsky's laundry skills, which reminded Coutts to tell the one about George W. Bush and the quiche. I never remember jokes, especially the good ones, but if there's one thing I hope to take away from my ride with Oracle Racing, it's those two punchlines.
