you’ve come a long way, baby

Our pals at Volvo Ocean Race HQ are struggling a bit this time around; usually, by this time in the typical VOR race cycle, there would be tons of speculation and new boat launches and crew musical chairs to focus on.  But the new Volvo One-Design 65 changes all that, and it’s hard to get excited when there isn’t anything to talk about.  The boats are mostly built, the well-funded teams are mostly formed, and the stragglers  - including a young and hopeful US team with some rumored Eastern European backers – are keeping their mouths and their computers completely closed for fear of screwing up their tenuous deals as the start date looms ever closer.

But Rick Deppe and the media folks at the VOR are nothing if not resourceful, and for Christmas, they delivered this gift for your viewing pleasure – a beautifully done, perfectly preserved and remastered documentary of the 73-74 Whitbread Round the World Race.  Enjoy.
