As the skippers answered questions yesterday at the Volvo Ocean Race Miami press conference, it became apparent that there might have been more unanswered questions than answered ones. With a small number of points separating the top four boats, one thing was clear: future points are precious, and even the smallest mistake can mean the difference between being on the podium and not.
Today’s in-port race will likely not make anything more certain. The point spread is such that any gains by the top four boats, even of just one or two points, will not have a major impact on the current scoreboard. With just three in-ports and three legs left in the race, it’s now crunch time for the teams.
