Follow Volvo Ocean Race Leg 3 in Google Earth

Pirates of the Caribbean Sailboat Volvo Ocean RaceThe 3rd leg of the Volvo Ocean Race round-the-world yacht race started today. They left Melbourne, Australia for Wellington, New Zealand. You can see other details about the race and Google Earth network link in my earlier stories here and here. Or you can just download the network link now and see the history of the previous three legs and watch the LIVE race in Google Earth right now. You might want to load the current global clouds as well.

You also might want to install the excellent official free 3D application - Virtual Spectator = for watching the race with more detailed information and excellent 3D rendering of the boats, their wake, sail changes, the weather, night and day, and the weather conditions. It runs on Windows 98 and up.
