At Sea. Volvo Ocean Race: An awesome sight is how movistar's Bekking describes ABN AMRO 1 overtaking @ BYM Sailing News
 
A very exciting last 40 miles into Fernando Island for the crew of movistar and one we won't forget soon either. ABN was closing in quickly, in these reaching conditions. All was looking safe, but then with about 30 miles to go, we parked up under a huge rain cloud. When the rain eased away, I nearly had a "heart attack: they had sailed through without any problems and halved our lead in no time. <a href="http://www.bymnews.com/new/content/view/27252/50/">Direct Link</a> <p><a href="http://www.sailr.com/news20089.html">Comments</a></p>
