He! He!, less than a month to begin.... and the main new is that after all they will not circumnavigate, I mean, not by their own means.

Doing that putting the boats in an airplane or in a freighter do not counts as a circumnavigation

IT STARTED!

And with a surprise on the first port race: The Arabs won Who would have guessed? It is not even a new boat

Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing surged to a commanding victory in the Iberdrola In-Port Race in Alicante, taking maximum points from the first competitive action in the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12 to gain an early advantage over their rivals.

The crew, led by British skipper and double Olympic silver medallist Ian Walker, roared home to a massive 14-minute win over their closest rivals to make it a dream debut for the first team from the United Arab Emirates to enter the race.

PUMA Ocean Racing powered by BERG were second, ahead of CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand in third. Team Sanya edged Groupama sailing team in the battle for fourth and fifth, with Team Telefónica trailing home.

Got up early Saturday to watch the Iberdrola In-port race and now hooked. Spent the last three days watching the weekly episodes from 2008-09 on YouTube. These guys are nuts... And, I would love to try just one day. Looking forward to leg one!

yep im playin the game. just finished 3 thousandth and something in the practice race. I was a dummy about the start of the race, got a 4 hour late start.....note to self, subtract 4 hours from the announced utc start time to arrive at the proper eastern standard start time. this game could be very addictive.......its also gonna be a great way to get my sailing fix while waiting for the snow and ice to melt
