VOR: Brief highlights video of HKG-AKL Leg 6 start
HONG KONG – AkzoNobel had a nice start and led the now six-boat fleet out of Hong Kong. The seventh boat, Vestas 11th Hour Racing, has been scored DNS ("Did Not Start") for this leg as the yacht is on a freighter headed to Auckland for repairs. Offshore the fleet has sailed into more breeze, currently 20+ knots, which is predicted to build. Watch the live (for the first 24 hours) race tracker here.
