    Instagram stories show that all teams came to help Scallywag. To remove sails and stuff from the boat etc.

    VOR 2017-18

    Am I only one who thinks that VOR "beach cleaning" PR events are pretty pathetic? Guys picking up stuff on beach without shoes and gloves. It looks like 2min video event, not cleaning.

    Vestas 11th Hour Racing 3 mins · Vestas 11th Hour Racing dismasted off Falkland Islands - Crew Safe At 15:59 UTC on 30 March 2018, Vestas 11th Hour Racing suffered a dismasting approximately 100 miles southeast of the Falkland Islands. The entire crew is safe and uninjured. The mast broke just above the first spreader but has been cut away to protect the hull from damage. At the time of the dismasting, Vestas 11th Hour Racing was sailing in a 25-to-30 knot northerly wind with three-meter waves. The Volvo Ocean 65 is seaworthy, and the crew is now motoring to the Falkland Islands where the team, in conjunction with the shore crew and the Volvo Ocean Race, will evaluate the necessary next steps to get the boat and crew to Itajaí, Brazil as soon as possible. The team does not anticipate any assistance required from other teams or the MRCC, who have been notified. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.

    I don't have time to work on tracker. Use official one for up to date information. Fixed exclusion zone for now.

    VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Probably not first to do it on trackers. I have seen similar approach even on B&G chart plotters. Nope, did not get reply from VOR. So I'll keep it for my personal usage.

    Polars aren't same. But main difference is that I was not aware of new exclusion zone. Edit: added new exclusion zone
