Finally in Florida *Updated*

Published by under Racing,World's

Well after the plane breaking down and getting delayed for 27 hours only to have a Virgin flight block the runway up for another few hours I’m finally here.

The boats got stuck in customs for a day and instead of a flatbed car lorry to onload all we got was a covered truck with a tailgate lift.

with some inginuity, brute strenght and plenty of ignorance all boats are on the deck and in one piece, all rigged up just having a bite to eat and then off for some training and hopefully be ready for the US Nationals starting tomorrow.

Awful weather here, 28 degrees and blowing 18-20knots from the West every afternoon.

TBYC Volvo Ocean Race Game

Hi All, for all you armchair sailors, and following popular demand I am sponsoring a trophy for the best placed TBYC virtual boat in the game. For those of you who have not entered or who do not know about it, then here are a few facts. The virtual race mirrors the actual Volvo ocean race covering 8 legs over 9 months. The game has in excess of 120000 virtual boats. leg 1 is complete but we will run each leg as a race in a series and load the entrants on Hal’s racing programme as a series. The series will have 2 discards for the 8 legs to enable newcomers to join in and possibly win!!!. After the first leg the top five TBYC boats were 1st Daren Fitchew, 2nd Jeremy Sandford, 3rd Steve Healey, 4th Steve Hopper and 5th David Hopper.

The next leg starts on Sunday 11th Dec 2011 so get registered and join in the banter and fun!!!

You can register at

Then please leave a comment on this article so we can enter you and your boat in the regatta.

Happy armchair sailing Steve Hopper
