Okay, sounds like it will be a pretty spectacular week of racing out on the Atlantic. There's only one thing left for you to do: get in the race yourself. You don't have to actually risk your life, you only have to sign up for the Virtual Regatta. You won't be getting seasick, but you will be pitting your skills and tactical smarts against the more than 18,000 virtual skippers who have already signed up. It's just one more thing that makes the Route Du Rhum pretty amazing.
