Countdown to Barcelona World Race almost over

The countdown to the start of the Barcelona World Race is just a few days and hours away, as the crews and their teams put the finishing touches to the boats before the Race starts on the 31st Dec. The winds look reasonable with an E and NE forecast, although very light in places so the weather routers will be working hard from the outset to ensure they don't get caught in any wind free zones.
With teams saying their farewells as many of us celebrate with friends and family, lets raise our glasses and wish them good luck and hope they all return safe after taking on the elements. Follow the race and get the latest pictures, weather conditions and updates on how the teams and their yachts are fairing in one of the World toughest sailing events that also starts and finishes from Spanish shores.
