Volvo Ocean Race Fleet Fights Agulhas Current (videos)

Inside Track - Leg 2, Episode 2 | Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15: As the fleet fights the Agulhas current, life gets tough onboard, and up the rig, as we hear from Stacey Jackson of Team SCA

On The Edge | Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15
One day into Leg 2 and the boats can still see each other. The fast speeds would make any of us be cautious, but for these sailors, it only makes them compete more fiercely, if that's even possible.

And they're off! The fleet has left Cape Town on Leg 2 to Abu Dhabi. A maelstrom of a start, some unexpected conditions, and a check-in with the new guy in the fleet, Rob Greenhalgh.
