Who needs ladders? Eco 60 Spirit of Canada is undergoing final preparations for the Velux 5 Oceans race. The boat is currently on the hard at East River Marine with the keel hanging in a ten foot well that was dug so the bottom of the boat could be brought down to ground level to put on the racing bottom.

In less than two months, the Velux 5 Oceans 2010-11 race will begin in La Rochelle, France. At the starting line will be Brad Van Liew on Le Pingouin, the lone U.S. entry. For his sails, Brad went with Quantum again, which he used on Tommy Hilfiger Freedom America when he claimed a round-the-world victory in 2003.
