    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    This is getting as exciting as the Volvo!

    Teams?

    I remember this well. I'm an ETNZ fan through and through ... but I feel uncomfortable that GD is now defending a very expensive boat with, lets be honest, not many challengers. The very things he has been strongly criticising for years.

    VOR Leg 11 Gothenburg to The Hague

    Any idea where the poem is from? "At the end of all things is the sea ..." Not coming up in a Google search.

    Footage of Heavy Air

    Not so much heavy sailing conditions but one of my favourite clips from the last edition. Mapfre cross just behind Alvimedica in the depths of the southern ocean some 1,200nm from land!

    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    Holy shit, this GG tracker is a thing of nightmares. Reminds me of the experiment where scientists gave spiders different drugs and then laughed at the webs they built ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effect_of_psychoactive_drugs_on_animals

    Thanks, good interview. I'm trying to work out why they flipped it - some kind of copyright issue with what's in the background?

    Team NZ

    Toyota will continue its support for Emirates Team New Zealand for the America’s Cup defence on the Waitemata Harbour in March 2021. New Zealand’s largest motor vehicle importer and distributor is also Emirates Team New Zealand’s most loyal supporter, having first joined the team in 1992. The 2021 Cup defence in Auckland will be the eighth America’s Cup campaign that Toyota New Zealand has been involved in, making it the longest continuous sports sponsorship in the country ..... https://www.toyota.co.nz/about-toyota/toyota-news/2018/june/toyota-backs-the-2021-americas-cup-defence/

    Women of the VOR in the New York Times

    Have you seen the wingspan on Sophie? Well, of course you have, hence the post - it's pretty intimidating.

    I'd like to add to the general sentiment and thank the many contributors here for your informed, often one-eyed, and amusing commentary over the last 8 months. Too many to list - you know who you are. This edition of the VOR has been quite incredible and I hope that the new ownership can take this momentum and carry it forward to 2021. Only time will tell and I'm sure there will plenty of biased opinion right here as announcements are made. I feel a little deflated since the finish as the VOR tracker had become such a part of my daily routine that I feel like something's missing now. I've certainly got a lot more done at work this week. Finally, I'd like to acknowledge Fish one more time. What a lovely man. You are not forgotten.

    Who are you talking to Jack? Some kind of ghost the rest of us can't see?

    That is bloody hilarious. New term for the boat "the scary sail" - love it!

    I think having women on board is awesome and I'd like to see that continue. My wife races more than I do these days and she's been uplifted by watching these kick-ass sailor chicks do their thing. I also teach learn to sail, and the talent I see in some of the young girls is seriously impressive. Age for age, kilo for kilo, many of these young women are leading the way. In 10 years time it will be a different landscape.

    AC36 - The Venue

    Have posted this in the Auckland thread but perhaps here is more relevant. Anyway, I've received all manner of emails regarding my submission(s) to the AC development. Today however, I received an email from environment court with all the submitters email addresses visible. I have blurred them out on the picture below to not make matters worse. What a bunch of fuck-tards. There's bound to be a bunch of ACA members in there.

    Great photos Herman, it's pretty cool when a sport allows such close access. We met many of these guys in Auckland and they were all welcoming and generous with their time. BTW, thanks for the regular routing updates. I enjoyed trying to understand them
