WorldSailingShow0518Exiting the Southern Ocean marks a milestone in any circumnavigation, but for this edition of the Volvo Ocean Race the passing of the notorious headland triggered a deeply emotional response across the fleet. Leg 7 from Auckland to Brazil had been a brutal affair and tragically, had cost one crew member his life. A dismasting and widespread damage had added to the stress. By the end of the leg there was a new pecking order on the leaderboard. So this month, the World Sailing Show headed out to the leg finish in Itajai, Brazil to produce a Volvo Ocean Race special.
