Adventurous or Crazy? Pair of 71-Year-Olds Rescued for 7th Time

I’ve covered senior citizens engaging in activities generally more representative of the young several times — from car racing to pole dancing — but this may take the cake. A pair of 71-year-old yachtsmen have been trying to sail across the ocean. Sailing is challenging work for anyone, and ocean crossings are understandably difficult. These two have been trying to get from Norway to Maine since July. They’ve just had to call rescue services for the 7th time, and are off the coat of Cornwall. But they seem to be taking it in good spirits, so I say, “Ahoy!”
