VolvoOceanrace Prepares for Sanya In-Port Race.

Tomorrow, Saturday 7 February 2015 at 14:00 hrs Local time, that translate to 06:00 UTC, the Start shot will sound for the Sanya In-Port Race. 

Six VO65 Boats will start on a narrow circuit and taking the wind as it comes, try to win this sailing race. 
Last time, I remember, that it was very tricky on the water with variable winds , weak also and some windholes that stalled the leading boats, to give the chasing boats the chance to sail around that windhole. 
Could it again be such wind condition, well I guess you will have to watch, either on the quay or via the internet either the VOR website or Youtube.   

A view on the In-Port circuit, depending on wind strength the circuit will be sailed once or twice,

On Sunday, the VOR fleet will continue with the Start of Leg4 to Auckland, New-Zealand.
