Re: 2011 Volvo Ocean Race - photographs

Thanks for your comments - very much appreciated.

My son (Sadly you cant see him as he is a wee bit small) is in this shot talking to Dean Barker ... Legend Kiwi sailor who jumped off Camper on the final day in Auckland before she headed off.



I highly recommend that you guys track the boats here... So exciting to see the lead boat changing every day...

Sadly the VOR isn't coming near this part of the world. Nice photos though.

Re: 2011 Volvo Ocean Race - photographs

Hopefully I can get some shots in Miami. I'm no photog - so they won't be nearly the quality, but they should be some pretty good snaps.

Re: 2011 Volvo Ocean Race - photographs

Love to see them... any photos are a bonus.

You lucky thing... What a stop off for the guys - nice and warm... they must be heading into some cold and wet conditions now... They are all moving along around 18knts and it looks like an Easterly - hopefully a nice smooth run.
