Dick and Foxall's iceberg-proof wardrobe...
Following their win in the Barcelona World Race, Jean Pierre Dick and Damian Foxall have published a ‘recap’ of the highs and lows of their voyage. Particularly revealing is the account of the huge number of layers they had to wear in Iceberg country in the Indian Ocean.
One report reads ‘I am wearing 3 pairs of socks, 1 pair of gore tex oversocks, 1 pair of boots, 1 long johns, 2 fleece trousers, 1 waterproof fleece salopette, 1 undervest, 2 fleeces, 1 waterproof jacket, 1 pair of Neoprene gloves, 1 gore tex survival suit and 1 pair of Arnette goggles”.
It puts the winter series to shame!
