Pirates Amidst!

I really didn’t intend to blog so much about the Volvo Ocean Race but there is just so much interesting news! Team Abhu Dabi rough weather sailing

Apparently the French Team, Groupama retain a 80 NM lead but maybe not for long. As the fleet heads into the Indian Ocean and perhaps the trickiest and most unpredictable portion of the race, The Doldrums. Where historical light winds and the occasional unpredictable squall could really mix things up. Take a look at this short video as they approach what is called the ‘Stealth Zone’ and then the ‘Safe Haven’. This is a new feature this year for the VOR due to the increased risk in piracy!
