Volvo Ocean Race, 2016 Evaluations and more sailing news
Welcome to this edition of our UK newsletter from Sail-World.com.
Equipment Evaluations for the 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition are underway in Santander, Spain. Sail-World has the latest news and videos.
Across the world in New Zealand, the Volvo Ocean Race competitors have left Auckland on Leg 5 of the race, headed for Itajai (Brazil). Facing rough weather and building seas, Telefonica skippered by Iker Martinez (ESP) was the early leader blast reaching at 18 knots, but the latest news is of a protest over the sail inventory and Camper has snatched the lead. On board Puma Ocean Racing two crew members were injured in the brutal conditions, one is much recovered and the other might be a Cape Horn drop off.
And in this edition we have the latest news from the Laser World Masters Championships, from the Vendee Globe skippers, the Clipper Round the World fleet, the RS:X Worlds, the Garda Optimist Meeting, the Global Ocean Race and much more.
