The Green Dragon crew hit rough weather on leg 1 of the Volvo Ocean Race

Green Dragon has emerged from hiding.


At 16:00 GMT Ian Walker’s men came clean having spent the last 12 hours in StealthPlay an innovation for
the 2008-09 race which allows boats to conceal their position from the rest of the fleet on the longer
offshore legs.
When they returned to the radar of the rest of the fleet, any advantage they had sought to gain from
their tactical ploy was minimal.
The 16:00 Position Report had them in fourth place (presumed) at a distance of 55 miles adrift of
the leader PUMA who held a seven-mile cushion over Ericsson 4.
Then came Ericsson 3 with a DTL (Distance to Leader) of 26, Delta Lloyd (DTL – 71),
Team Russia (DTL – 94) and finally the Telefonica duo locked together at 110.
