It’s almost halfway through the race and we still have seen precious few moments in big Volvo Ocean Race conditions; Sam G does his best to share some of them with us from aboard Dongfeng, and once again, we comment the Franco/Chinese team for keepin’ it real with Charles Caudrelier’s ‘oops’ here.
Meanwhile, Team Brunel and the SCA girls have split off to the North and with the wind freeing up, both are advancing rapidly on the Southerly group. The girls were first to tack to starboard on what looked like a flier, and though Brunel are ahead of them, could this be the first big break for the pink boat?
With the race getting interesting, SA is the place to be. Check SA’er ‘Campbell’s’ latest weather routing, analysis, and more finish time calculations (like the one to the left) here, and get in on the discussion in the Ocean Racing Anarchy thread.
