A list of the bigger boats entered. There will be some races within races going on. Rambler vs Scallywag (Has Scally any chance?) Mini Maxi's and Jethou which has been turbo charged to 77'. The older Volvo and the newer boats and The Imoca's. The Cookson 50's like Privateer will be hard to beat on handicap. A great fleet.

What you've mist is the big battle at the very front between the 100 foot foiling Trimarans, Macif, Gitana 17 and the brand new Sodebo. Theres three of them aiming at ultimately averaging speeds of 40 knots. The old, non foiling Sodebo now called Actual Leader is also on or just off the pace. Although these amazing machines are still very much in early development they are going ahead in leaps. no motors running, can be sailed single handed they are amazing. 

The likes of Rambler and Scally will be days behind these rocket ships. 

Here's a bit of footage to wet your appetites for speed.

I'll drink to that mate but not with your beer, it'll be a Vonu please..!
Can't blame you Terra, and that Vonu made with Fijian water has got to be good!

Ultra-light and refreshing, Vonu Pure Lager is a low-carb beer with Fijian roots. The Fijian word Vonu translates to 'turtle' which not only symbolises the pure Fijian water used in the development of the lager, but also the feelings of relaxation and longevity associated with it.

Cheers!

BTW, I do appreciate your enthusiasm to come up with all things racing related, and quite honestly I am only taking the piss because I am in total denial myself.

How can you be days behind on a 2-day race?

Privateer is the Cookson 50 to beat IMO. They have done a lot of work, see video above. Yachting World - Onboard Privateer. A well campaigned boat too. They hold their value too
