Late - But First!

 It took a long time for the lead boat in the Volvo Ocean Race to get out of the weak winds and make the finish into Baltimore harbour.

But ABN Amro One did it - after sailing for nearly three weeks from Rio de Janeiro.

A good boat and an excellent crew I was told by Swedes there awaiting the arrival of the Ericsson boat.

That boat is still out there on Chesapeake Bay, and will have to try to sail through the night.

Sevel o'clock tomorrow morning is when it is presently expected to cross the finishing line.

But sailing remains an uncertain business. Posted by Picasa
