Hounding Dalton
No ALT tag specified

Volvo Ocean Race

Three yachts have finally lined up to chase one yacht to prevent the underdog from winning the first leg of the Volvo Ocean Race.
But once again Grant Dalton on Amer Sports One managed to widen the gap between himself, illbruck, News Corp and Tyco. If they want to catch him this way, they will have to be faster.

ASSA ABLOY is trying the other option to hunt the old fox, to cut him off. Nobody knows yet whether the fox will ever head this way, and it happens often enough that the fox makes a clean getaway.

The second group of hunters was more successful in chasing their fox. Amer Sports Too had to surrender on the southerly route, now finding themselves in pursuit of pink djuice, climbing back towards the north to prevent dropping another place on the leader board.
