Volvo Ocean Race is gone with the wind

PICTURE THIS

May 10, 2006

The Chesapeake Bay became the center of the sailing world as a pack of Volvo Open 70 yachts sailed up from Rio de Janeiro to Baltimore in Leg 5 of the Volvo Ocean Race. After stopovers in Baltimore and Annapolis, which included maintenance, racing and a festival, the boats started the next leg of the race Sunday, heading off to New York. Thousands watched the departure from boats lining the race route and from the Bay Bridge, where the Bay Bridge Walk coincided with the restart. After New York, the racers are scheduled to head across the Atlantic Ocean to Portsmouth, England, in Leg 7 of the race.
