Charlie and the Anarchists aboard Dongfeng Race Team are minutes from the finish in Sanya and a momentous occasion for the most Chinese team we’ve ever seen in any major event; watch the homecoming live here with (we think) the wonderful past SCOTW Genny Tulloch MC’ing them in. To chat about it, hit the latest page of the thread here. And for a cool new feature the VOR doesn’t have (but should) from yet another Anarchist taking the matter into his own hands, check out “dglad’s” VOR Social Content Aggregator here.

Are you ready for it? We are. Sperry Top-Sider and Sailing Anarchy bring you what you’ve been waiting for: The Gold Fleet! 3 women and 76 guys made it through, and now, the regatta really begins. We’ll be telling you the full story live, over three races as the Finals begins. Bouncy video and awesome commentary at the 2015 Moth Worlds.
We might even get our super special guest star to talk on the microphone; he’s holding cables at the moment…stay tuned.

Screw football: Let’s watch some boat racing! Team SCA, with 3-time Olympian Carolijn Brouwer taking over the stick from Sam Davies (who moves to trim and big-picture stuff) gets their first In-Port Race win today in Abu Dhabi! With the In-Port Races getting more and more important as the fleet’s parity becomes evident, this was some of the most aggressive racing we’ve seen yet from the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race. Team Brunel finished second, and the local favs in third, with MAPFRE’s woes continuing and Alvimedica caught along with the Spanish team on the wrong side of a big first-beat righty.
Check out Clean’s raw interviews with Sally Barkow, Carolijn Brouwer, Bouwe Bekking, Anderson Reggio, Nick Bice, and Patrick Shaughnessy as well as dozens of pics from Anarchist JeffB starting about here in the Abu Dhabi stopover thread.
And be sure to tune in at the same time on Saturday for all the action from the Leg 3 Start – with Chris Nicholson alongside Knut and Clean for the OTW commentary. We’ll have it right here on the front page, of course.

Traditional match racing isn’t always our cup of tea, but even adrenalin-junky/snobs like us have to admit it takes serious boathandling mastery to have even a remote chance of winning any match race, let alone the grand finale of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour. In a great video example of this kind of skill, Bjorn Hansen must scrub off a penalty against frenchman Mathieu Richard if the Swede is to keep his hopes of a first World Title alive, and the only way to do that is to nearly stop his boat despite 15 knots of wind coming from behind. Watch it unfold here, with Clean and Simon Shaw on commentary. For a video wrap-up of the penultimate day of Tour racing, go here.
To see if Taylor Canfield and his US-One team can continue to crush their opposition and hold on to become the first American (yeah, yeah, we know) to win the World Match Racing Tour in over a decade, as well as a big chunk of the incredible MILLION F*%KING DOLLAR prize purse, watch the live stream on Livestream, or scroll back up to the top of the page in a few hours.

There’s plenty of breeze today for the WMRT semi-finals, in huge contrast to yesterday’s ultra-light conditions, which saw Simon Minoprio eliminated, leaving not a single one of the top four WMRT skippers in the event. Today Keith Swinton takes on Phil Robertson, while Simon Ferrarese will try to get past Bjorn Hansen. Two more days of live World Match Racing from Sweden, and here are your semifinals.
