This edition is awesome with all the boats being of the same design, it`s so close compared to other years because of that.
The tracker is also working great so you can watch after the every 3 hour update exactly what the boats have been doing (pull the slider back and
press play). Great is also to see how they try to confuse the opponents right before they are giving their 3 hourly update in the direction they are
