Volvo Ocean Race

Volvo Ocean Race - Interesting site for armchair adventurers or people who just enjoy sailing/boating. The event takes place every ~4 years and is currently underway. Custom designed and corporate sponsored 70ft carbon fiber sail boats with 11 man crew, most are former Olympians, race around the world. The race normally starts to get interesting when they get to the southern ocean and start to hit big seas (40ft+ waves) and ice.

The web site is high tech and set up to allow virtual spectators to follow the race in real time with video and data feeds from the boats taking place in real time.

First leg from Spain to Cape Town, South Africa just completed. At each stop there is in port racing.
