SWR 17/18 Leg 3 - Cape Town to Melbourne
This, the third of eleven legs of the 2017/18 Sailonline World Race, takes us from Cape Town to Melbourne!
After departing Cape Town in probably light winds and passing Cape of Good Hope, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us toward Melbourne.
The southern race boundary has been set at 60°S to mark the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone, which will, hopefully, give us a clear run.
