Volvo Ocean Race: Leader close to Fernando - new record in the offing? By Richard Gladwell/Sail-World.com/nz, , 2:29 PM Sat 25 Oct 2014
With less than a day left to reach the turning mark at Fernando de Nonoha, 220nm off the coast of Brazil, Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing has retained the lead she built in the Doldrums. She is unlikely to be headed, although the second boat on the water, Team Brunel is projected to be less than an hour behind at Fernando ...[more]

Volvo Ocean Race Control reports that the lead boats in the 40,000nm race have rounded, or rather passed, the turning point off Fernando de Noronha.

O Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing venceu a corrida até a Linha do Equador, marco mais significativo da primeira perna da Volvo Ocean Race.

Volvo Ocean Race - No point pretending for Dongfeng + Video By Dongfeng Race Team, , 4:10 AM Sat 25 Oct 2014
Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15 – Day 13 onboard Dongfeng Race Team. Weather from here to there? Upwind, boat heeled, wet on deck (too wet to open front hatch and let air through), hot below decks still, bumpy ride, not easy to relax onboard – and going to stay like this for four or more days with no real prospect of catching the guys in front as everyone is straight lining in same conditions. ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race - Team Alvimedica out of the Doldrums By Amory Ross, Team Alvimedica, , 1:52 AM Sat 25 Oct 2014
Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Onboard Team Alvimedica. I’d hate to come across as being impossible to please but after days of wanting out of the doldrums, days of struggling with routines, with sleep, with a lack of regularity and consistency to our schedules, and of course--predictability to the weather—we’re 'out' and still trying to find it ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race - Improbable match race for Team Brunel By Team Brunel, , 1:46 AM Sat 25 Oct 2014
After racing 2,500 nautical miles in the Volvo Ocean Race, Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing and Team Brunel once again found themselves in an improbable match race in which the boat of skipper Ian Walker slowly gained ground and finally disappeared from sight yesterday. Now Pablo Arrarte is trimming the mainsail. Water drips from his nose. There is a 17-knot wind blowing from the south-east. ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race - Team SCA prepares for the Southern Ocean By Corinna Halloran, , 1:37 AM Sat 25 Oct 2014
Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day 13 onboard Team SCA. I’m unsure if I should be nervous, excited, stressed, or thrilled today. As today I get to have fish guts smeared over me only to then become officially apart of King Neptune’s kingdom. ...[more]


2014-15沃尔沃环球帆船赛 - 穿过赤道无风带 东风队期待再创佳绩 By Volvo Ocean Race, , 11:45 PM Fri 24 Oct 2014
2014-15沃尔沃环球帆船赛第一赛段的比赛进入第13天。赛程已将近过半,之前一直挣扎在赤道无风带的7支船队,现在都已从这臭名昭著的区域离开。最西面的阿布扎比队和布鲁内尔队暂列一、二名,在最东面的维斯塔斯风力队紧追其后,东风队由于之前长时间受困于赤道无风带中,目前暂列第四名。 ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race: The week ahead on Leg 1 - Team Alvimedica By Sail-World, , 11:18 PM Fri 24 Oct 2014
Team Alvimedica Navigational Strategist, Anderson Reggio, explains the issues ahead of the crews in the remaining half of leg 1 of the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race. After the Equator and Fernando, the weather looks to be shaping up to be pretty standard for the South Atlantic. The St Helena High which typically dominates this body of water is the main driver for breeze in the short term. ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race: A 17 time Equator veteran describes the ceremony By Stu Bannatyne, Team Alvimedica, , 10:32 PM Fri 24 Oct 2014
The next landmark, or ‘sea mark’ if you will, for Leg 1 is crossing the Equator, as Team Alvimedica continue to make their way south to round Fernando de Noronha off the coast of Brazil. Crossing this latitude is not like crossing any other on their way around the world, but has special significance for sailors who have never crossed the 0° parallel of latitude. ...[more]

Volvo Ocean Race - Mano a mano en plenas Calmas Ecuatoriales By Mapfre, , 6:00 AM Fri 24 Oct 2014
Lucha en los Doldrums para unos y despedida para otros cuando se alcanza el décimo tercer día de etapa entre Alicante y Ciudad del Cabo (Sudáfrica). Si bien el grupo en cabeza parece que ya disfruta de vientos que suben del Hemisferio Sur y han abandonado las calmas ecuatoriales, el 'Mapfre' espera salir de esta transición mientras continúa luchando con chubascos y vientos inestables. ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race - Abu Dhabi stopover call for volunteers By Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, , 5:36 AM Fri 24 Oct 2014
As preparations ramp up for Abu Dhabi’s December/January Volvo Ocean Race Stopover and the yachts battle it out for glory from Spain to the Emirates via Cape Town, more than 200 volunteers are being recruited to help deliver the UAE capital’s 23-day watersports, entertainment and cultural event. ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race - Anything can happen in the Doldrums By Corinna Halloran, , 5:27 AM Fri 24 Oct 2014
Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day 12 onboard Team SCA. This morning the boat was so quiet you could hear a pin drop, shortly after sun up we were hooning along in 20kts in a torrential downpour, by late afternoon we were sailing backwards, and who knows what tonight will bring. ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race - Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing first to exit the Doldrums By Jonno Turner, , 5:10 AM Fri 24 Oct 2014
The push and shove of 12 knots of Atlantic breeze – things are looking up in the Volvo Ocean Race. On board Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, things are looking up. First in the fleet, and out of the Doldrums, they’re heading fast towards the Equator, trade winds blowing gusts of encouragement around their ears. ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race - Day 12 for Team Alvimedica By Amory Ross, Team Alvimedica, , 3:22 AM Fri 24 Oct 2014
Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day 12 onboard Team Alvimedica. There is no question as to the origins of the phrase 'down in the doldrums;' the monotony of these days is painfully apparent. It’s a pattern too familiar: a night of variable conditions—torrential rain and 20 knots of wind one minute, no wind and starry skies the next. Feast or famine. ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race - A nightmare for sailors By Team Brunel, , 12:36 AM Fri 24 Oct 2014
Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Onboard Team Brunel. 'At this rate, it will take a century before we get to Cape Town,' sighs Jens Dolmer, standing on the bow. He is trying in vain to push the flapping foresail outwards. There is hardly a breath of wind. In the distance, the sun is sinking into the ocean. ...[more]

A disputa da primeira etapa da Volvo Ocean Race no Oceano Atlântico continua bastante acirrada.

Volvo Ocean Race - Playing the Doldrums lottery By Agathe Armand, , 4:58 AM Thu 23 Oct 2014
A day and a night of uncertainty - later, the Doldrums will come to an end for the Volvo Ocean Race teams. By tomorrow morning, the fleet should be sailing safely in the southeasterly trade winds. So – who won this equatorial lottery? What was the best place to cross this convergence zone, where two hemispheres and two weather systems collide? ...[more]


Volvo Ocean Race - Ante 24 horas decisivas By Mapfre, , 4:39 AM Thu 23 Oct 2014
Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15. Tras una difícil jornada a bordo del 'Mapfre' en las que las condiciones han puesto a prueba la paciencia de incluso el más experimentado, el barco español coge aire gracias a un viento que ha entrado por el Este y que ha supuesto una inyección de moral para la tripulación. ...[more]
