Eating 5,000 calories — EACH DAY? That’s the Volvo race

So it was with a certain amount of envy that I read about the food on SCA, the women’s boat in the Volvo Ocean Race.

The women are burning 5,000 calories a day! So they need to eat at least that amount to maintain their strength.

Um — how many women do you know that can eat 5,000 calories a day? And I’m sure the men need even more.
