ABOARD ASSA ABLOY - Greetings from the ASSA ABLOY pizzeria! All is well aboard ASSA ABLOY, and we are working hard to increase our lead on the four Volvo 60s chasing us from close behind. When I say pizzeria, I really mean to say scorching-hot brick oven. Down below on one of these yachts is incredibly hot these days.

Bathed in mist and fog and surrounded by a mass of nearly 1,000 spectator boats, the yachts in the Volvo Ocean Race resumed their around-the-world voyage yesterday afternoon, charging under the Bay Bridge to begin a 3,400-mile trek to France. In contrast to the chaotic start in Miami this month, all eight yachts crossed the line - just north of the bridge - cleanly in a tight cluster, with Swedish entry SEB a nose ahead of Amer Sports One to begin Leg 7 of the race. The boats that straggled up Chesapeake Bay in fluky winds 10 days ago took off in building southerly breezes for their 118-mile drag race to the Virginia capes, where they will turn east and head for the Gulf Stream to help push them across the Atlantic.

Annapolis sailor Chris Larson, tactician aboard ASSA ABLOY, will provide updates during Leg 7 of the Volvo Ocean Race. ABOARD ASSA ABLOY - Wet, wild, and fast! This is the only way to describe Leg 7. The start on Sunday was great as the eight Volvo 60s tacked through the Bay Bridge and down the Chesapeake. Since then, the throttle has been mashed to the floor. Winds have been 20 to 30 knots. We logged 471 miles during one 24-hour period. I think 28.2 knots (32.5 mph) is our fastest speed so far. "Fire hosing" best describes life on board.
