    So many legs and finally what we all have been waiting for....

    Where is Shang? Probably passed out drunk by now. Question is, will DF be back next round?

    Scrimping miles. Perhaps a bit too tempting this round. With the scenic waypoints and the rocky geography below the surface I'd like to know who crashes out.

    New imoca boats

    Yep. The idea is that the material mix is both much less polluting and easier to recycle than the usual stuff. The last promo tour for the material was on the "Open 16" across the Atlantic. That was mostly noted for being a bit slow (87 days one, 46 days the other way) and Haralds (the son) ability to take a beating. (Norbert bailed out of the original attempt.) The current project through the North West Passage, Cape Horn twice and back home has been announced in 2015. Back then it was start in July 2018 with the return expected for February 2019. Looks on schedule. Is the boat part of the IMOCA class?

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Looks right. 17 points max left on the table. 2 legs remaining including 2 bonus points for leg wins. And of course 1 point for fastest overall. Game on.

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Back at 5 kts. With all the slow boating in tides they should add R2AK like rules next round.

    So, will DFRT catch them?

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    They carry a Fortess FX85, 10m of 12mm chain and 100m of 18mm anchor line, that should be enough.
