    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Yeah, sure was. Good to see the VOR radio silence being bypassed at last. Witty is a bit of a dick but his views on the future of the VOR have some merit. Will be interesting, or possibly not, to see what the outcome and fallout of this edition is, once it's over.

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Interesting interview with Witty. Nipper was on the helm; There is video of the accident; OBR launched the drone; etc. Lots of unknowns now cleared up. Witty clearly not a big fan of the VO65. Interesting to hear future plans for Scallywag - didn't know they had a trimaran being refitted.

    Ever heard about Coppercoat? Is it effective?

    My RM 880 has coppercoat still going from 2007. Needs a clean and gentle sanding pre-season to get best results. Will be going to regular antifouling next year though.

    You need to up your game a bit

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Rees-Mogg is a real person, not a parody as he often seems - he's an MP and a good bet for a future leader of the Conservative Party, and potentially Prime Minister of a completely fucked post-Brexit UK. I'm not kidding. We're doomed. String the pencil-necked entitled posh boy up. I hate him and everything he stands for. /drift

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    I respect his sailing CV and credentials, but he really comes across as an entitled, preppy Ivy League prick sometimes. Something a bit sneery and arrogant about him. Anyway. This leg is a particularly exciting one - they will be going full out on the last ocean leg, plus double points. With the potential lottery finish up the Bristol Channel. Bring it on.

    Well done Mapfre. Great finish. I hope TTOP get in next. Thought they deserved a better result really, but that's sailing. Good to see all boats in one piece with rigs up etc

    I really hope TTOP get a podium or even the win. They deserve it, Dee particularly. She's a great leader.

    Seems a bit rash from Scallywag assuming there's more breeze to the east

    Conrad's a real asset to the media side of the race. Presents really well, likeable and so knowledgeable.

    Where exactly is the nav station? Does it change side of position or move in any way for different tacks? Thanks
