Most of the links on the official website for the tracking map are broken. But you can find it here.

Wouldn't  you classify the new gen IMOCA boats as flying machines ? there is not much of the hull in contact with the water when they are at pace

It may be a little early to decide, and probably better to wait till they reach Cape Horn.
But so far, the foils in the VG are more prone to damage, but the attrition rate was higher in the GGR due to rolling and pitchpoling.


Any idea of if these VG boats would have a Series Drogue?  Or, is the thought of towing a warp to slow the boat just not something done in these types of races?
The GGR boats that had drogues worked pretty good from what I read, although one drogue did give way which is why the English lass Suzie something, was pitchpoled.
