While Team GBR is expected to dominate, the Australians, the Dutch and French are all pushing hard.



A dramatic end coming up fast in the Volvo Ocean race into Lisbon. With a soft patch ahead, there could still be changes, all through the fleet. Just saw the Camper - Whale footage on Sky.

Warming Up
If you’re down South or out West, you could be thinking this is going to be about the weather. If you’re down South or out West, you could be thinking this is going to be about the weather. After all, the Winter solstice is long gone and the hours of daylight are steadily increasing, so it sounds like a plan. Writing this from the tropics makes those words seem almost surreal, but alas there is no climate change to be talked of here.
