    Volvo Ocean Race makes 50 million euro bet

    Using pickle forks that have nothing to do with the race for the in-ports is the stupidest decision made in the history of sailing events.

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    What am I missing here? On the VOR tracker it looks like weak winds to the west with better wind for the next several hours back inshore along the layline.

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    Watching the live coverage from the race village and it looks like there is plenty of space to swing a cat! The Abu Dhabi start I went to was busier and the people of Abu Dhabi give zero fucks about sailing. Cardiff on a sunny Sunday isn't a far run from the Mecca of British sailing along the south coast or many of the lakes and clubs up to the Midlands.

    Pedro only lasted one leg? I guess he has been replaced by Jack Macartney.

    Fuck but that's an ugly mode of transport!

    What about a Suzuki Grand Vitara? My wife isn't tall and loves the her 4-door. It has a 2.4 unit, lots of space and is all-wheel drive with a proper 4H/4L transfer for when it gets a bit hairy. Great value too and servicing is well spaced. It's slightly agricultural inside but isn't dependent on electronics like some of the cars you've listed.

    Post #1 of this thread shows them and names them.

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Where did DF manage to build such a massive time-gap?

    The pressure is definitely on Brian T for this leg.

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    One of them could have stuck to the rhumb line straight out of Newport and probably been in the thick of the fleet now!

    On-watch on the Barra to Lerwick leg during a cold, windy night must have been a wet and miserable time! But what a ride!

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    I was going to berate Dong Feng for always hiding under the wings of Mapfre instead of making their own decisions and trying to get themselves ahead but I just looked at the tracker and it seems they have done just that! The in-port was their race to take from Mapfre but they never took the initiative. It was also very nauseating listening to the commentators talk about how unfair it was that Dong Feng didn't win the leg into Newport but seems to forget that it was Brunel who lost out most yet they are not making any fuss over it that I have seen as publicly as DF. I know Shanghai Sailor is gong to skin me (pun intended...) but I actually think DF has shown several times that they can lead the fleet but they need to get out of their comfort zone. The tracker is showing the fleet about to fall off the back of the front going through and the 6-hour forecast is showing light winds. If that is anywhere near accurate (and rarely seems to be) I cannot fathom why TTOP has gybed north.

    Well, Newport isn’t on any bucket list to sail in!

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    What time, in GMT, is the in-port? Volvo needs to put a countdown to that as well as the big start- they’re points scoring after all
