The VolvoOceanRace will start at 10:00 GMT with a circuit in front of the Abu Dhabi harbour before setting sail to the loading point for the V70 boats, near Sharjah. 

The VolvoOceanRaceGame will start at 11:00 GMT from a starting point in front of the Abu Dhabi harbour. These boats are more courage's and will sail the whole leg themselves!

Fair winds to all :)  

For a review of the scorecard so far have a look at the TAB above with the proper name. 
A new Map for Leg 3 is available under the TAB progress map. It will show the daily position of my boat in the VolvoOceanRaceGame, and the leader of the   V70 boats (occasionally a indication for all V70 boats).
