Dear Ileana, No I don’t, and I don’t think any of the other skippers do. Mostly it is because the boat is going too fast to fish, and also because even if you caught a fish, then you have to filet it and cook it, and it is too time consuming to do that for the race. I think that perhaps in the tropics, if a flying fish lands on the boat (and they do every night) and a skipper wanted to, he or she could cook it up for breakfast! I think that Alessandro Di Benedetto did that a few times in Vendée Globe 2012!
