Volvo Ends, Will Begin Again in '08

I've been more than slightly focused on the historic Newport to Bermuda...and benefited greatly from Laurie's regular Hamilton Bermuda wire updates but - as my friend Joe pointed out when we were over at his house for dinner Saturday - the Volvo Ocean Race has come to a close and I've failed to note it. So, as most of you likely know, on June 17 the U.S. yacht Pirates of the Caribbean won the ninth and final leg of the Volvo Ocean Race while Dutch entry ABN AMRO ONE took overall honors.

Woth noting is that the organizers are breaking with the traditional four year cycle...the race will now be held every three years with the next one beginning in 2008.
