Episode 35 – Wings – published on June 9, 2015
Leg 7 of 9 of the Volvo Ocean Race is the final big ocean blast – 3,000 nautical miles across the Atlantic. Skirting underneath any floating icebergs in Titanic territory up north, the fleet then has to negotiate a huge windless hole mid-Atlantic – the Azores High. Some do well, some don’t. Additionally, we catch up with Team Brunel crewman Gerd-Jan Poortman in Holland, and Team Vestas Wind hits the road for Lisbon.
