Watch the Jacques Vabre Transat Race in Google Earth

Just like the Volvo Ocean Race, you can watch the JVT in Google Earth as well.

You can download the Google Earth file here (you must have Google Earth installed).

Here's a screenshot for the TJV race as seen in Google Earth. There is an exciting race going on here as there is still no clear winner in either the mono or multihull classes after 2/3rds of the race! Here is my story on the TJV at the Google Earth Blog.

The 60 foot Monohulls are nearing completion already (much faster than last time). And it's a close match with three boats all vying for the win within about 25nm of each other.
