All 6 Boats in the VolvoOceanRace have start the Last Leg9 from Lorient to Galway, Ireland.
It will be a very short race, for Ocean sailors that is. The reporting of progress is done on a minute frequency so you can at any moment see who is first etc.
The winds are SouthWesterly and pretty strong , so the fleet is having a good speed of around 20 kts.
