Sometimes Ocean Racing isn’t Racing at All

Check out this short little video of the Team Puma during Volvo Ocean Race refueling in the middle of the ocean. Yes that’s right, refueling! Well, with a quarter of a mast and a race to get back into, they need to get ashore for a spar replacement as soon as possible. Thank God for hi-tech communications and GPS devices, and thank God for those shipping lanes.
