    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    I tell you what - I think you should contact the teams and tell them to do this

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Not sure if Volvo does any routing Anyway, as an above average keen sailor I have invested in PredictWind. Polars for the Volvo 65 are there. It predicts (yes) lots of wind until Saturday. Slightly northern route. I don’t understand “those who do not have routing software”. You are obviously in possession of a device, and freeware exists. Nothing is stopping you

    I got mole cancer in the eye. Had surgery and radiation therapy to take care of that, so I’m all good now but with permanently poor vision in that eye.

    Hehe which eye did he damage? My left eye is ok, if his right eye is fine we’d make a brilliant team...

    Not that it helps you, but it looks fine on my iPad, using safari. It’s brand new, though.

    Well, I kind of miss waiting for the updates and the speculations between them. But I also love being able to check the tracker anytime. So I’m not complaining. I’m just glad I can actually SEE it, so I have a hobby until I can get back on the water again myself in a few weeks! Hopefully I won’t get seasick. Pretty much blind in my right eye, for good, so I hope I get used to it.

    VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    This leg is so different. No goofy videos with Witty, just a minimum of raw pics. Looks like they aren't up for much, just trying to survive this leg. And it's perfectly understandable. Very sad. I hope they get their spirits back soon.

    Hopefully long enough away from all the sharks and criminals in Recife.

    Haha - best entertainment ever. I’ll be on sick leave a couple of days after may 7th, hopefully I’ll be able to spend all my time watching this. Key word is “watching”, cause one of my eyes isn’t working and needs analysis. And yes, I have real friends to help me. But you’re my SA friends.

    It's spring, and already the sun is up until 21:30. It takes a while to adjust to - for example you'd wait until dark to have dinner. But after the adjusting, all is good and I love it And Swallywag do have team t-shirts, but they are sold by sailracing.com and a bit pricy....I find your request a little strange, I don't expect the VOR to sell team t-shirts. That's a whole lot of logistics and very little money to make.

    I realize it’s just a snapshot, but doing 9.2 k knots in 9.5 wind speed with a twa of 50 isn’t slow, in my opinion....

    I’ve been to Brazil 6 times and never had good coffee. I suspect that they export the best. To my country, for example the caipirinhas, on the other hand...they make good ones and it’s never too early!

    Thanks. They must have updated it right after I wrote this. Gee, I feel powerful
