Where's the wind?

Forget the forty knots of wind, the second offshore leg of the Volvo Ocean race has seen the boats drifting in light winds with several collisions and penalty turns. Playing bumper boats at the mark, ABN AMBRO ONE bashed into Ericsson, bending one of her stanchions then Ericsson had an incident with Brazil.

Net result - protests and a couple of 360s and 720s.

And there are over 6,000 miles of racing to go.
