    Default Volvo Ocean Race

    Don't know if anybody here is following it but after 5700nm on this leg they're Match Racing to the finish

    HERE if you want to look.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    Yes 16 days sailing night and day, 5700nm, then only 1m:1s between 1st and 2nd and only 3 hours over the whole 7 competitors.

    The odds of that happening must have been 1,000,000:1

    Anyway, I hope the grog supplies in Newport hold up because these guys are going to have a terrible thirst after a bit of kip.

    There's a guy down the street with a Volvo he'd like to enter into that race.

    I know it'll float - at least for while - but as far as racing it from that point --- I just don't think so.

    Still, and all - I'd pay good money to see it compete.
