@staceyjackson26 living the dream up the mast on SCA yesterday arriving into CapeTown, what Leg1 means to her #inspire #elleperteamsca #teamwork

As a teenager, at first because I was light and the easiest to hoist, later because I was working the bow and going aloft was my job, I went up the mast a lot.

This was only an 80-foot mast, not the 100-foot mast of a VOR 65. Still, especially at first, it was high enough to be scary. Usually I was going up at the dock, when the boat was stationary. Once in a while, though, I’d go up during a race. Since the motions of the boat are magnified up there, going aloft in rougher conditions (something I only did a couple of times) was a wild ride.

But the view was amazing.
