I visited Baltimore, Maryland on business and discovered that sailboats and crews participating in the "Volvo Ocean Race" were in town with all the yachts docked at Inner Harbor. This around the world ocean race started back in November in Spain and is still going on. How does Spain to Sweden by way of a South Atlantic/South Indian/South Pacific route around Antartica sound? (See the picture below.) They just ended a racing leg which started in Rio di Janerio. The race is expected to end in Gotenborg, Sweden in mid June. For more information see the official web site.
