Boston was hopping with activity this weekend for the 2008-9 Volvo Ocean Race stopover. Saturday’s In-Port Race was disappointing due light wind and grey skies, but mother nature made up for it on Sunday, with 25+ knots and bright sun. Sunday’s racing was a pro-am, and the course was modified due to the high wind. Race committee had them doing a series of short match races with each boat rounding it’s own marks- not as cool as seeing them jockey with each other, but it is understandable that they did not want to risk a collision during this promotional racing day, when their real mission is to set sail for Galway next week. Despite having to be reefed and not using a chute, the Open 70s looked great crashing through the chop and sending spray flying through the air all afternoon. Click Here to view our photos.
