    VOR 2017-18

    It was done on the Idec and Sodebo-record hunting around the world. Not sure if they had a geovoile tracker?

    Any information yet on who will be on board AkzoNobel in the inport race and on leg 2?

    VOR 2017-18

    Thanks! I would have thought that VOR would have their own tracker as the leg zero is "mandatory"?! ;-)

    So what about the front page news - has anyone seen onboard videos or photos from Brunel?

    Zander may be right: after winning in fleet-racing and match-racing, Peter Burling might try winning an ocean-race: NZ Herald

    VOR 2017-18

    The last sentence in the above link gives me some hope: "A total of four teams have so far been confirmed for the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18, with more to come in the next few weeks." Who will it be? and how many?

    What a beauty, congratulations! Looking forward to hear the rest of the story, and see some inside pics. How do you like the interior-layout?

    VOR 2017-18

    So, after all the discussions about male/female and what boat would be better / more extreme / more exciting... Back to the current race: any more info on which teams are confirmed, rumoured upon? So far confirmed are only AkzoNobel (NL), Dongfeng (France/China) and Mapfre (Spain)?

    AT finish live - starting 0720UTC My guess is, that "Leadersecu" is the leading security boat accompanying HB

    From the Vendee Site: The tracker will update hourly once the leader gets to within 100nm of the finish. More information on how to follow the finish of the Vendée Globe can be found here http://www.Vendeeglobe.org/en/village-for-the-finish/how-to-follow-the-finish
