BtoB race through Google Earth

Here is a super cool shot showing the positions of all the competitors in the transatlantic BtoB race. Derek Hatfield on Spirit of Canada has been struggling through the doldrums as has Rich Wilson on Great American III. Both boats are close together and struggling to exit the basement of positions. I will use Google Earth to show how close they are in another post soon. With Google Earth you can zoom in and out and change the angle of view as well. I can't wait till we are doing this with our own boats in Montreal's races!
