Re: VOR down to two boats

Yep, still stands as far as I know, will be interesting to see if the average for the race is faster than previously though. I have a suspicion that it won't and that these current Open70s can only be pushed above 75% (just plucking a figure out of the air there) in flat conditions whereas perhaps previous generations could go to 75% more often giving them an overall better speed.
AFAIK the only boat not planning on making Itajai is Sanya so hopefully there will still be plenty for the lucky locals to watch.
