If you haven't seen them yet, the 'LiveX' concept is simple; Every other day while at sea, VOR headquarters gets the skipper of each boat on video to answer questions for 10 or 15 minutes and show the fans what they're experiencing, and it's all livestreamed through, well, Livestream. It's a great look into what fans will someday be able to expect from all the great races; live video that brings you right into the cockpit of the boat just like in-car cameras do for auto racing.

Apparently, someone at VOR headquarters liked our interviews a lot, because they asked if we'd like to conduct Wednesday's live video interview with Ken Read aboard Mar Mostro as they hurdle toward the Brittany coast. And of course, the best stuff on Sailing Anarchy always comes from the Anarchists, so here's a chance to get an answer for what you most want to know about this leg, the Puma team, or anything else that you think the Puma team can answer in a short time in potentially nuclear conditions.

So ask your questions here, and I'll let you know what VOR says in response to my request that they send over some swag for the best question.

You can watch our live interview with Kenny on Wednesday at 1700 UTC/1200 EDT/0900 PDT. The live stuff autoloads if you leave VOR Livestream channel up in a tab, and switch over when you hear the sound come on.

Hmmm questions...
I'll toss a few up.

It appears that you don't like the prospects of the VOR going OD. But will it really make a difference to you?
Anything you're looking forward to with the OD, if so what?
Do you find the shortened leg more tactical and precise than the longer leg?
Do you see yourself doing another Volvo?
If you could choose a design or parameters for the next VOR what would it be?





Don't mind my picture. Its unrelated.

How much design influence did you have with Juan K? how similar are the three Juan K boats? Where are the differences? Do you feel that Juan K has done a better job for one team at the expense of the other two? By three of the five competitive teams using the same designer, are you not already on the way to OD?

If each team had a ~150# weight bonus for some non-sailing related crew "luxury", what would you bring? What are the 1-2 things that you miss the most while sailing around the world due to the spartan nature of the boats? (digital porn does't weigh anything!)

How would you feel if the VOR is being raced in the MOD70 catamaran?
Don't you think the mono's surf nicer of the waves?
How do feel of installing shelterspace aboard the VOR's just like on the Hugo Boss Imoca of Alex Thomson?
It's not a flushdeck I know, but would make life of sailors aboard a lot easier?

-what difference in your crew work/shifts between the longest legs (20-25 days) and these short ones (5-6 days)? Do you like most the short or the long legs? why?

- are there appreciable difference in speed between shifts/helms on your boat in same wind conditions? and in particoular conditions like night or strong wind etc.? are you managing that too on a tactical / strategical point of view? can you estimate that on other boats? do you consider that on a tactical /strategic point of view?

- has the racing level onboard really raised from last race has it seems from outside? or is it just boats performance very close?

- are the wind conditions and angles found in this VOR untill today similar to your expectations and which lead your boat and sail optimization? would you favour other sailing angles or wind speed in a future development on same course?

- what are the biggest innovations to land on smaller boats from this VOR? rigging? sails? software? energy production and management? deck hardware? sat communications? (french? ;) )

- you said racing VOR is probably the toughest job in the world right now. most of the other guys in this race could not earn so much outside of this race. But you have a North sails' VP job back home. why are you still doing it? would you do once more? would winning once the race change this perspective?

these are the first in mind, feel obviously free to edit to better english or better/shorter journalistic cut!

At this stage in the race there is not much need for secrets - so:
What was the most effective change that was made to the boat (probably in Sanya, since there was no real optimization time before that.)

How important has your spaceman spiff super ultra frickin Laser speed measurer on the bottom of the keel been to getting the boat up to speed?

Are you excited or angry that the Kings finally won the Stanley Cup?

Can the fleet ride this low all the way to the finish, and is it going to be a case of Send it or Break it to determine the winner?

What is the function of the second set of numbers on the tacking lines on the deck near the front of the cockpit? There are the standard set of degrees, with 90 on the beam, and 10 degree increments fore and aft of that, but starting at 90 and going forward, there is a second set of numbers. At 90, the inside number is 135, at 80 it is 140 (so 5 degrees for every 10, and increasing, not decreasing). 70, 145; 60, 150. See this photo.

Strategery Q from the Top; Now that your about to turn the corner you are about to face big; seas, breezes and pressures all in the quest for glory. Kenny, have the PUMA / BERG exec's whispered in your and ear and said "go for it" ? Go for the 24 hr record, put 30 pts on the board and let's go out in a blaze of glory?

Two questions for Mar Mostro from me:

2) How worried are you about this and is it keeping you up at night?

Did Kimo tell you that he's put the boat up for sale? (A bit cheeky, but fun and a chance for everyone watching to know about it...)

Discussing the future of VO70 class you said that Puma had managed to build the boat for significantly less than what other teams spent on theirs and you offered that as a model for going forwards. As the only boat not to have significant hull damage throughout the race you also managed to build it strong; what were some of the key things that your group did that kept the costs down and the quality up?

Do you change the watch system on these "sprint legs" vs longer legs.
Is it harder to get into the rhythm of racing offshore knowning the leg is relatively short, time-wise at least
Do you find these sprint legs easier or harder tactically ?
Does the leg feel more like an inshore race in terms of boat on boat tactics vs a longer ocean leg.

Duh. Of course. If your target TWA for a given wind strength is 135, then you are laying the leeward mark when it is 90 on your beam. If your TWA target is 140, then you are laying it at 80, etc.

What are the prospects of getting these boats to actually do something useful, collaborative and interesting in a scientific sense on their next lap of the planet? e.g. Water sampling, plankton surveys, acoustic monitoring for whale populations, air or radiation samples. Seems Volvo could score some nice PR points by requiring all teams to share that sort of burden, and attract a non-sailing audience. Other ideas would be to prohibit onboard liquid fuel and generate all power from hydro, solar or wind, using whatever system is preferred.

Also, what about requiring disclosure of all performance data for each yacht after each leg?

Ken,

The onboard video and crew injury list point to a horrible risk from water coming over the boat. For a monohull to go this fast, does it have to be essentially wave piercing with those risks, or is there a way to make the boats safer / dryer?

In your opinion, would a switch to multihulls be safer for the crew while maintaining the speeds?

1. With the winds increasing and the top 3 boats being so close in the overall will you be trying to stay further North than Telefonica and Groupama? Is throttling back an option at this point?

2. How has the race been with the 3 under 30 crews? Do you see this changing to include more under 30?

Clean, well done almost like a professional. Interesting to see what news comes out of Groupama after Kenny thinking they may have a keel issue.

Good job with the interview, Alan.

Kenny's response on my "boat for sale" question was exactly what I'd been hoping for... Of course he's a pro and knew it'd happen at some point, but I am guessing he didn't know the timing.

Pulling for Puma!! Stay safe and sail fast!!

Seriously!? Of course KR knew the boat was listed for sale. His reaction was just playing it up for the audience/camera (and due to the lag, in small part).
