Volvo "In Port" Race on the Bay

Very exciting news popped over the weekend in the Baltimore Sun - apparently the Volvo fleet will race "in port" around the buoys on the Chesapeake Bay during their four-week stop in Baltimore and Annapolis. The race is set for 1 p.m. April 29, just north of the Bay Bridge, in a deep swath of water between the Magothy and the Chester rivers. If the weather is good and the wind blows true it will be a fine sight the likes of which are rarely seen...according to the article the Volvo Open 70s draw almost 15 feet which means that the risk of grounding on the mud will be a certain factor.
