Volvo Ocean Race Leg 6 is approaching

Today Saturday 21 April at 17:00 gmt will be the Start of the Volvo Ocean Race In-Port Race in Itajai, Brazil. Most likely Azzam will be repaired in time , which will make it a 5 boats race field.

Camper, was successful in the Pro-Am style race that was held yesterday. A half hour summary of the Itajai Pro-Am can be seen here.
This is a good training for the In-Port Race so the Kiwi's hope for a Good result.

Leg 6 of the VOR will start a day after the In-Port race on Sunday 22 April at 17:00 gmt. First a starting circuit will be sailed before the boats set off into the Atlantic.

Lets hope that the 5 participating boast, all can this time sail till the Miami Finish, without structural damage or loosing the mast and if so, they may also make it a close finish.

Fair winds.
