The race is back on

After 12 days on this leg to Hong Kong, we have a new leader overnight and namely Scallywag and this despite the fact they had a man overboard and the resulting manoeuvre to get him back.

There are still 2.300 miles to go though.

Drone pics

One has to agree that  the pictures, taken by drones operated from the Volvo Ocean boats, are amazing.

I would love to know what kind of drones they are using. They must be quite powerful when you consider the wind and boat speeds.  A lot of skill is called for.

If I make it to Göteborg for the arrivals, I shall ask one of the teams. In fact I might email them right now.

Bad news from the South Atlantic

Yves le Blevec capsized just after passing the Cape Horn early this morning. There was a strong 30 to 50 knots wind with burns up to 70 knots. One of the arms on the port side broke.

Apparently he is secure inside the boat and rescue is being organised.

He had a 2.600 nautical miles lead on the previous record holder after 19 days and 10 hours.
