Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(April 17, 2009) On CNN Mainsail, double Olympic gold medalist Shirley Robertson goes exploring both ends of the spectrum.

In one show she is traveling to the Caribbean and the St Barth's Bucket regatta where entry is restricted to superyachts of 100 feet and more. She is invited to sail on an impressive selection of private luxury liners and tries push-button sailing where all the technology is behind the scenes in a world where simplicity and comfort are the ultimate goals.

In another show, Robertson is connected via live satellite video call to the VO 70 PUMA during Leg 5 of the Volvo Ocean Race 2008-2009, with the crew providing her a tour of their hellish hovel where crews share bunks, sails crowd out the living quarters and a hot meal is boiling water poured into a bucket of freeze dried food powder.
