Nov. 5, 12:30 p.m. – Ladies and gentlemen, we are down to the wire. It is 40 miles, at the time of writing, to the finish of the first leg of the Volvo Ocean Race, Cape Town. After more than 6,800 (theoretical) miles, we will witness a photo finish at the VOR. Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, skippered by Ian Walker, leads by only 3 miles over the French-Chinese DongFeng Race Team (skipper Charles Caudrelier). No one, on the eve of the departure from Alicante, would have expected a duel for victory between the Arabs and the Chinese. Who are you rooting for?
