Hugo Boss get the early advantage

Action on the water off Bilbao for the start of the Velux 5 Oceans
Leg one of the Velux 5 Oceans got underway on Sunday afternoon under ominous looking skies and a building breeze. Fastest away was Alex Thomson in Hugo Boss. The video gives some idea as to the breezy nature of the day and the acceleration potential of an Open 60.

Mac users can now view WMV files by downloading a suitable add on to Quicktime - we for example use Flip4Mac which works a treat. The only noticable difference is that while the clip will play out while downloading on a PC, on a Mac it must download first.
