Videos of the beautiful and brutal south in The Ocean Race

It’s a stormy Saturday in the South with gale force winds and towering seas

The boatfeed from Biotherm shows 43.5 knots true wind speed and the following seas are mountainous.

“These are proper, proper ocean waves,” said Team Malizia’s Will Harris. “They make it very challenging to sail in but also kind of fun. Every now and then you get an epic surf – full speed down a wave. It’s nice when you feel in control. When it doesn’t feel in control, when we have big gusts, then you’re a little bit nervous.”
