Chichester Francis, I think a cruise is delightful

I think a cruise is delightful, and I have enjoyed a number, both as air-pilot and in sail. But it is not to be compared with racing, record-breaking, or doing something that has not been done before, for excitement, interest, sport, and the satisfaction of achievement. Those of you who have both raced and cruised know exactly what I mean; you have only to recall the excitement and sport and fatigue that you have had out of four hours racing compared with four hours of a leisurely sail.

Sir Francis Chichester
