    A big project!

    Prissy, you might have seen it all before, but I'm confident many of the rest of us have not. I for one thoroughly enjoy his videos, his attitude, and his boat, and have supported him and will continue to do so. And personally I am completely in the camp that prefers to go sailing to fixing.

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Okay good, a BAD morning wakeup.

    I see someone important agrees!

    And whose brilliant idea was it to place the finish line of a transatlantic leg so far up that channel, which few will witness because it is the middle of the night? Ridiculous! (yes, I know, beating a dead horse)

    Looks like Dongfeng went too far north, wind is filling in from the south, making the BAs happy, but what a nailbiter for them.

    That's amazing footage. Not doing the triple headsail routine however.

    Looking sweeter for the plastics all the time. Just wish they could stay in front once they get there.

    Interesting gybe from Scally. Apparently they are not concerned about being dropped by the front.

    Windy suggests that front will slow down, in which case the southern four boats can ride it all the way back up north and do a great southern loop. Can even imagine a scenario where Brunel wins and the red twins come in last, which would really shake things up.
  11. Impressive indeed, especially since his boat "even in stormy weather it manages to keep course and gain altitude". My kite can gain altitude, but I doubt his mini can.

    VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    Well that sucks big time. Glad I went kiting instead of following that clusterfuck. The kiting was great and the waves were huge, far better.

    This is no fun, going to go kiting instead as I am back in Cape Town and the NWester is blowing with 6m waves, woohoo!

    Indeed, good for Brunel if Mapfre come second, but Charles will be thoroughly pissed off.
