    Surprising they didn't tack out to take the right for the next big cross? When you're that late.

    Agreed it's all squished everyone's lost 30 lbs

    Gary Jobson is always good for a laugh.

    Is there an international live stream online yet?

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    I don't think he's making that suggestion. I think he's suggesting that the organization take a look in the mirror to make the event safer. Not suggesting that they're actually responsible. These boats factually, have less protection from waves than other boats that sail in this part of the world. Look at Banque Populaire IX 8 guys on deck, completely shielded from the elements.:

    Hancock has done the Whitbread 3 times. His opinion on the matter holds far more weight than anyone in this thread. If you've been down there (Which I haven't, and I'm guessing no one i this thread has) then you have a right to an opinion.

    I definitely agree with the Hancock perspective. Look at the vendee cockpits:

    I can't find any reference to scallywag having AIS trouble. Brunel was having AIS troubled according to this: "“It just feels like there’s always something to do,” Abby Ehler explained. “We had a couple of breakages on the first day, we’ve got a little tear in the J2 and our AIS isn’t working, which is a real hindrance not being able to see the rest of the fleet. We’re working our way through all these mishaps.”" https://www.volvooceanrace.com/en/news/11294_Turning-to-the-east-pointing-to-Cape-Horn.html

    VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    For context, the team that won dismasted and still won!!!

    They're all good, no doubt. But two are easily the best. Andrew Cape is likely the most overrated of the bunch. That was plain to see with the telefonica implosion in 11/12.

    Vestas have more than a shot at the overall. SIFI and Pascal are easily the two best Navs in the race.

    I disagree, in any one design boat PB would 100% own Spithill, match racing or fleet. I think Ben Ainslie, Ian Williams, or Taylor Canfield would all own Jimmy.
