From the Volvo Ocean Race Headquarters in Alicante, we catch up live with the entire fleet live, via satellite, as they near the Mt. Everest of sailing, Cape Horn. We hear from the top four as the round, as well as from Dongfeng Race Team on their recent dismasting, and from TeamSCA about their Cape Horn ETA. A ground-breaking first for live coverage in such a remote location! ... [more]  

Team Alvimedica, the youngest crew in the Volvo Ocean Race, rounded the iconic Cape Horn first today just after 1400 UTC and only 15 minutes ahead of Abu Dhabi Racing, in a hotly contested battle at the front of the fleet. While the 6,776- nautical mile stage from Auckland, New Zealand to Itajai, Brazil, is far from over and there are no race points for reaching the iconic landmark first, a Ca ... [more]

[more]  

Whilst everyone onboard remains in good shape considering circumstances, final miles to Ushuaia are anything but easy.

The original mast rigging that holds up the remaining main section of mast is only in place on the port side. ... [more]  

Four boats in the Volvo Ocean Race celebrated rounding the venerated landmark of Cape Horn on Monday, a pleasure cruelly denied Dongfeng Race Team (Charles Caudrelier/FRA) after the Chinese boat’s mast was broken early in a dramatic day on Leg 5. Team Alvimedica (Charlie Enright/USA) had the considerable honour of leading the battered fleet past the fabled point at 1407 GMT, just 15 minutes cle ... [more]  

Regular weather produces regular results, but sailors, being what they are, are not totally regular, and on the third and final day of the St. Thomas International Regatta they provided some surprises.
