Well Hot damn, if you believe the tracker the Austrians finished First.  They truly sailed their hearts out and I can only imagine if they had the same sail suite as the other 65s could they hang in all conditions.

And for the VO65s...  (doh, sorry JohnRowe, initially all I saw in your post was the IMOCAs...)

What a mess the communication on this one, and the line didn't even show up on the tracker.

Feels like there was a bit of panic in their comm team (if it exists at all).

Miripuri last... That's going to hurt and surely 11th Hour are going to be placed last following a protest from Childhood. Having watched the video what I cannot understand is why put yourself in that position against a fleet you're not racing...

AmberSail should protest :D
Seriously,  Rerunning the tracker it was a tight race between Austria, Poland, Childhood when Amber came roaring in.  Right at the end they were in first (for a few updates so how the hell do they finish in 6th.  The racing was amazing, but the presentation looks like a elementary school media committee. 

 
What an insane finish... but it feels a lot like lottery, which IMHO isn't the best. Really tough for Mirpuri, and Corum wins while it didn't lead ever ?

Anyway, that was fun... hopefully next leg won't be as much lottery.

it's a vicious circle: if you have no funding, you can only afford a comms intern...if you don't have good comms it's hard to get more funding...

Lots and lots of small onboard clips to down- and then upload.
Will post the link when a considerable number is uploaded :)

The media center download function is not the most comfortable.
