And They're Off!
The Volvo Ocean Race, a round-the-world sailboat race with 9 legs, started yesterday, 12 November. One of the folks at the Google Earth Community who calls himself 'lucifer666' (he can't really be a bad guy if he likes sailing), has posted an excellent network link for following the race. If you want to follow the race, download the Volvo Ocean Race network link (the network link means you are accessing a server which will automatically update positions). I also suggest you download the Global Cloud Map for basic weather info.
By the way, after only one day, two of the boats are returning to port for repairs. Apparently there was some strong weather overnight and these two boats had equipment failures. This often happens at the beginning of races with new boats, and when competitors are often pushing the boats too hard.
