  1. media coverage of this edition is the best i've ever seen. Hope the 2014 edition is as good and the sailors as enjoyable and interesting.
    Real adventure and sport here, no football pussyfooting.

  2. best thing I've seen in a while. beautiful video. forget how intense it all really is, their race track is the open ocean. going to miss those awesome 70's.

  3. I'd like to say a big thanks to all the media crew who put these docs together, as well as the in port races and the leg starts. It is excellent stuff, so nice to watch top level sailing for an hour or more with great shots and knowledgeable commentators, and you get these three every leg! It has been brilliant.
