Next year's Volvo Ocean Race

The last Volvo Ocean race was a bit of a disappointment for me. With all the breakages and extreme cost it seemed it was less about seamanship and sailing and more about commercial publicity.

Next year it will be different. They have made a one class boat for all competitors and apparently made it stronger. Matt Sheahan of Yachting World wrote an interesting article telling us about this next generation of boats that are built to last. Now I'm looking forward to seeing how they actually perform in the real race.
