Istanbul Europa Race: Leg One To Nice

"The Istanbul Europa Race, in the prestigious IMOCA class, is the latest great sailing race in the yachting calendar. Its long course through Europe is to make it a major sporting event from its very first edition. In the great tradition of stage races, the Istanbul Europa Race will bring together a fleet comprised of some of very best sailors of our time, taking them on an ideal course and offering a genuine invitation to travel." ~ Read More About Event...

Since the end of 2008-09 Volvo Ocean Race, it's been a hoot tracking down it's alumni and seeing what they are up too next. Partly to pass the time while we wait for the launch of Spanish Castle To White Night and also as a spectator who is constantly impressed with these tireless guys who can't get enough!

Hey, there is another distraction wrapped in this event - VIRTUAL REGATTA!!! Play along with the race!
