Sailing Report Update

With all that we reported about sailing earlier this week, it's hard to believe there's even more news from the round the world racers.

Velux 5 Oceans
An update from Sean McQuilken
Brad Van Liew finished the third leg of the Velux 5 Oceans first with a 300 mile lead on the trailing pack of boats. We are glad to see an American doing so well in what has traditionally been a segment of the sport that the French dominate.

Barcelona World Race
The leading Barcelona World Race teams, Virbac-Paprec 3 and MAPFRE, are about to round Cape Horn - a major milestone for any circumnavigator. At the other end of the pack, the We Are Water team is making repairs and cleaning after a violent knock down yesterday.
