  1. Video of the start. Not much breeze, but still great to see these teams get off the line.
  2. Very excited to follow this race on SA! Will make for better reading than certain other threads that are train wrecks at the moment. I became a fan of Louis Burton during the VG due to his never quit attitude and constant pushing. His boat repairs in the southern ocean were incredible to follow. I am hoping he comes away with a victory here. Also rooting for Yoann in the V65 class due to his awesome analysis during the VG. was AT ever considering this race? Would have been fun to see him do a few legs against some amazing competition.
  3. I was in Melbourne during the stopover in the last VOR. Even though there was no inshore race, and the village was pretty small, it was still an incredible experience. Just seeing those boats (yes, I know they are no Imocas, but they look pretty impressive IRL) was amazing. And meeting the people in the village made it all the more fantastic. It made me sad I did not get to Newport for the finish there and the inshore race. Its sad to see that with all that went into the let edition, this race seems to be setting up with no visibility and not much of a buildup. I truly hope the race
  4. Anyone know if Aurelien Ducroz is signing up for the TJV, and if so, on a Class 40? I loved following his ski career, so I look forward to following his sailing adventures too in the future.
  5. Huge congrats to Yannick Bestaven. It sounds like he needed to overcome a lot just to get back to the starting line after his 2008 VG dismasting. I'm excited to see what's to come for him.
  6. Well done Louis!! Pushing hard to the end!
  7. Congrats to Charlie!!! WELL DONE!!
  8. Burton flying! Seems fairly calm for making such a big move, but I guess he's been doing it throughout the race.
  9. Thanks, Stief. Very interesting. With his performance so far, and his participation in the Kevin rescue, i would say that Boris has more than earned a dinner at the Yacht Club (world renowned restaurant from what I understand) with his friends, and a few stiff drinks at the bar.
  10. Sorry if this has been covered, but could someone please explain the relationship between Boris and Yacht Club de Monaco? Is he a member? Are they sponsoring him? I don't see any other imocas in the VG with yacht club burgees (maybe I missed it), so thought that was interesting.
  11. ^^^ This is almost exactly how CD and TR caught up to, and eventually passed, AT heading the opposite direction. AT went too close to the Brazilian coast.. Amazing. It will be interesting to see whether YB can hold off his pursuers.
  12. Things look to be shaping up for a fascinating split! Should be a really exciting final leg of the race. Can’t wait to see what happens. Best of luck to all out there.
  13. Looks like Maxime is enjoying himself and some nice chocolates for the holidays.
