by Adam Cort, Posted November 19, 2014The good news for the Volvo Ocean Race fleet is that for Leg 2, which starts today, the boats will be able to sail the entire 6,125 miles from Cape Town to the finish in Abu Dhabi.
by Adam Cort, Posted November 5, 2014Abu Dhabi has prevailed in Leg 1 of the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race edging out Dongfeng by the slimmest of margins in the opening chapter of what is looking to be one of the most competitive VOR’s ever.
by Adam Cort, Posted October 22, 2014Chinese-flagged Dongfeng sustained the first major damage of the race when it hit an unidentified submerged object that destroyed the boat’s port rudder.
by Adam Cort, Posted October 22, 2014Thus far the racing in the 2014-15 VOR has been as close as any in the race’s long history, thanks in part to the fact that this year’s fleet is made up of identical one-designs.
