Volvo Ocean Race Tracker

Sail-World.com : Volvo Ocean Race - A tactical decision to ditch the south: " the next thousand nautical miles will have the Volvo Open 70 fleet on port tack and in a drag race that will take them across the southern tip or Sri Lanka and into the Bay of Bengal toward the way point at Pulau We and the entrance of the Malacca Strait, nine miles off the northernmost tip of Sumatra. The landmass of Sri Lanka is continuing to produce a wind shadow, which has slowed the fleet, but once clear of the island and out across the Bay of Bengal, about 125 miles to east of the fleet, the breeze will pick up and the charge towards the barn door will begin in earnest.
