The Volvo Ocean Race 2014-2015,
Round The World, Leg 4, Sanya to Auckland, 7 of the world’s fastest monhulls, one found
itself high & dry on top of a reef, I say there just wasn’t enough water underneath at the moment of impact , their Skipper says they ran aground, it all leaves 6 yachts racing and the Fleet is coming to town… Auckland bound!
ETA for the first yachts across the Line into Auckland is 28 Feb 2015.
Right now, the leaders are… well, that’s a tough one, it’s been the first 5 since Sanya, all vying for the lead & taking turns out front, during this
Leg 4 to Auckland, and at the time of writing this, Dongfeng Race Team is once again
in the lead by 5.3nm and with 1484nm to go,
… DTF (distance to finish), anything can, and
as many of you know… will happen!
This is the Volvo Ocean Race Dashboard and it has a LIVE tracker, an ETA log for the first arrivals, a Glossary showing the distance between the boats, their speed, wind, DTF and all sorts of wonderful information, as a matter of fact, this is the best website I’ve ever seen on trying to follow race sailing postions ever! Hats off to those who created it
So, for now and continuing Updates, as they happen, the Volvo Ocean Race website is the place to be… and my Facebook pages for frequent NZ Time updates, when you simply cannot figure out, any more than me, or is it I… what time UTC is !
