H.R.H. Carl-Philip of Sweden clambers to top of 30-metre mast at sea
After climbing the mast in a safety harness, Prince Carl Philip wrote a message for the sailors at the top. When asked what the message was, the prince was refused to divulge the secret. One of his aides would only say "You'll have to find out – it's a message only for the brave," he laughed. "You have to get up there to read it for yourself."
The Prince was in the company of Swedish compatriot Martin Strömberg, the only Swedish sailor competing in the Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15 who is part of Dongfeng's sailing team.
The Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15's first leg starts in one week on October 11th when the boats will leave on the first leg of the race taking them to Cape Town. It will visit nine other ports before concluding in Gothenburg on June 27th, 2015.
