I remember following the '98 race, back when it was still called the Whitbread. We were watching early early internet video, seeing the boats then (way slower than today's) blasting along at 25 knots and thinking, "Dear God, who ever heard of going that fast in a sailboat?!"

Awesome stuff, loved in then and love it now.

Thanks for the updates/commentary, have to get more into following the latest on this race (heck, I've been swamped with work, didn't even realize the race had started!)
