Re: Vendee 2020

Not at all, the rescued person can't help sailing him, only a passenger until he offloads him, then Le Cam will be given time rewards at the end for his efforts. Happened before.

Re: Vendee 2020

Looks like they have easy days coming, just have to ride the following winds. The first 10-20 boats can stick together, which will make it interesting to follow.

Re: Vendee 2020

He is second atm. 10 miles to the leader, 7 from the 3rd boat.

Re: America’s Cup - ETNZ launches 1st AC75 (new)

My bad, I just quoted the headline:

'After being airlifted 9,000 miles from the factory, the 45-foot sailing racer exceeded...'

If you are commenting on my post, would you please point out where did I indicate that these dolphins are orcas? With due respect, are you reading more into a text than there is in it?
