Volvo Ocean Race 2011

This race, out of all the circumnavigation competitions is for me the pinnacle.  2011-2012 is especially exciting and I’m looking forward to the action.

Whilst ‘bad luck’ seems to have played its part in the withdrawal of three boats in leg one to Cape town, I can’t help but wonder, with half the fleet affected with structural issues already, whether the boats are a step too far?  Similar questions are being asked of the new Americas Cup multi-hulls, but having seen the action from Plymouth, I personally can’t wait for their big brothers to make an appearance.

Here’s a long but suitably in depth look at leg one of the Volvo Ocean Race from Alicante to Cape Town.

One day!
