Welcome to a very late Monday edition of Sail-World.

Off Brazil the Volvo fleet are back in action, and the intense racing that evolved on the previous leg looks set to continue with several lead changes. The crew changes aboard Ericsson Racing have had some effect as she led the fleet for a time, and now just two miles covers the first four boats.

You'll notice a big change in our Volvo Ocean race coverage, now that we are able to insert the position tables into stories and retain a readable format.

We are also featuring some excellent photography out of Sydney from the Gold Coast Race and the Classic Eighteens.

At Sail-World, we're always looking for local news and racing reports. Please forward a report on your event (preferably with a photo or two) to nzeditor@sail-world.com

Good Night!
