Spare a Thought
The winner of Leg 4 of the Volvo Ocean Race will arrive in Qingdao tomorrow (today their time) and second and third won’t be far behind. It’s still anyone’s guess whether Bouwe’s boys will hang on and beat boomless Puma and a Swedish boat without instruments.
Whatever, the guys that really might need some help right now are on Green Dragon, which – with 300+ miles to go – is looking at having to face another storm, in a boat that has no forestay and serious structural damage. These guys are pretty shagged out, as this on board pic shows, so spare a thought to wish them safe passage to China. More GD pix here.
