Rumors have been floating around Ocean Racing Anarchy for a while now, and now our plugged-in UK pal Justin Chisholm is reporting that the very successful Irish sailor Ger O’ Rourke (Chieftain) has almost closed on the purchase of ABN AMRO 1, a/k/a Black Betty. Could O’ Rourke, who sails with a generally amateur crew, be gearing up for a late VOR entry to join Team Green from the Emerald Isle? With a fairly pitiful entry list, the race can certainly use another – but with the innovative designs coming out of the existing teams, could Betty even be remotely competitive? Check out Chisholm’s take here.
