The Volvo fleet is preparing for in-port racing ahead of the start of leg 2 from Cape Town to to Abu Dhabi on 11th December.
Puma Ocean Racing is back in the water after suffering a broken mast during leg 1 in a very remote location. Time was against them but the team managed some how to ready the boat for the in-port racing. And Camper with Emirates Team New Zealand have again survived a protest against their forestay set-up breaching Volvo Open 70 rules. This latest protest was lodged by Franck Cammas' Groupama and alleged that several aspects of Camper's forestay and rigging set-up over leg one were illegal. An international jury dismissed the protest. Stay up to date with the Volvo Ocean Race with Sail-World.com's extensive coverage of the event.
The Clipper Round the World yachts are facing challenging conditions on their current leg from New Zealand to Australia's Gold Coast, while the Global Ocean race's double-handed crews are reaching east on port in the Roaring Forties, some 1,800 miles from the Cape of Good Hope, Africa, and 2,600 miles from Cape Leeuwin at the south-western tip of Australia. Visit Finland, skippered by Olly Osborne currently leads by just six miles.
