Re: VOLVO OCEAN Race!

i cant believe the one Team ran aground that was such a violent hit ! i wonder how they dont have technology to see the reefs? that would be so scary out there in pitch black of darkness sailing fast and then all the sudden a major stoppage!

Re: VOLVO OCEAN Race!

I dont know why the Women are so slow, they are doing 20 plus knots at times this Leg 3 is better then the last leg so far, we have better wind. We have a long ways to go is anyone playing the game? if so look me up "soulofasailor is my name

Re: VOLVO OCEAN Race!

Wow that's a lot of people hanging around on those boats. These guys (and girls) start in November. Here's the first weeks highlights from the last Vendee Globe in case anyone hasn't seen it. Grab a beer and some popcorn cause once you watch the first two week highlights you're glued for the rest of it.
