 Volvo Ocean Race 2011/12 Leg 1  Day 5
Where are the trade winds ? While 'Groupama' decided to move on gently in a light reaching breeze along the Moroccan coast, passing the Canaries today, 'Puma', 'Camper' and 'Telefonica' opted for an extreme Westerly course hoping for a low pressure system to arrive. The strategy of Franck Cammas FRA seems to pay for the moment as his advantage is already 40 miles.
Yesterday evening, 'Abu Dhabi' with Ian Walker GBR restarted the race after some repairs and the mounting of a new mast.
The race-viewer and the reports. Interesting also the videos showing the damaged 'Team Sanya', and presenting an interview with Iker Martinez and Javi Fernandez ESP, the ISAF World Sailors of the Year 2011, elected two days ago.
