AND ANOTHER THING . . .
It’s that annual battle again – the Down Under head-to-head of the 100-footers in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race, notably Wild Oats XI and Comanche . No predictions – the results will be out by the time you read this – but Aussies are eagerly awaiting ‘The Revenge of WOXI ’. The Golden Globe Race may have set stringent rules about communications, but insiders are whispering that these are being broken. Perhaps it was fanciful to think it possible to roll back the clock in areas that are impossible to police. If I were sailing for that long, I’d want some good weather info, and a bit of chat.
