Scuttlebutt Photos: VOR 70 Mean Machine

(Feb 15, 2007) The Volvo Ocean Race might be one of the premier events in the world, but that doesn’t mean it is all fame, fortune, and fabulous sailing. The Mean Machine program has gotten a jump for the 2008/2009 race, but right now they are dealing with the management of the boat (the former Pirates of the Caribbean) during the winter. The photos below were taken last week as the boat arrived in Rotterdam, Netherlands. On this day, winter meant cold and snowy.
