The Volvo Ocean Race has shown us a lot of “firsts” so far, and this week we have a couple of new ones. This leg is undoubtedly the first time we saw professionally-filmed video of a middle-of-the-night, mid-ocean near-collision, which just happens to be the subject of a port/starboard protest filed by Bouwe Bekking against Ericcson 3. It’s also the first time we can remember a race crew splitting into factions to try to raise the money to complete a race – just what is happening with Team Russia at the moment, and probably not a good sign.
We’ll have Anarchist ‘boots on the ground’ in Singapore to get you all the gossip and the latest drama in this drama-filled race – so check right here for the big stories, and bookmark the Ocean Racing Forum, brought to you by Point Loma Outfitting, for your more immediate VOR fix.
