In Nice, South of France, Dean Barker is not having a good day at the 'office'. It's the first day of the Extreme 40's sailing in the Extreme Sailing Series. Coming fresh from the AC45's in the America's Cup World Series, Barker was expected to maybe show the Extreme 40 fleet a thing or two, but it was not to be.
We have a report from the first day of racing, plus Dean Barker's own comments. We'll be updating on Sail-World.com on each race day - so stay tuned

News just in from the Volvo Ocean Race:
Volvo Ocean Race skipper Mike Sanderson was rushed to hospital yesterday evening for an emergency appendicitis operation and now looks set to miss the qualifying leg in just over a week.
The skipper of Team Sanya said from his hospital bed in Alicante that his chances of participation in next Friday's (October 7) Volvo Ocean Race qualifying leg from the southern Spanish port are 'marginal'.
However, his participation in the race proper is not in doubt.
We'll carry the full story on www.sail-world.com - check for updates
