That's pretty cool that the opposition helps fix the boat...

Was watching a race yesterday (on the TV).

That's some exciting shit. Its essentially the formula 1 of yachting. They must punch out some G's when turning.

Questions At the Azores, when to gybe?.....Burton’s Blip.....Barrrier, Huusela at Cape Horn Sunday

The margin of victory on this Vendée Globe may be down to minutes rather than hours. And while there seems to be a more remote chance that the actual winner will be decided on corrected time – after time compensation for being involved in the rescue of stricken skipper Kevin Escoffier – the projected time margins for the podium places are extremely tight.
