It's time to go back to our roots – and the boats are ready to tackle the Southern Ocean, with the fleet departing Cape Town at 1200 UTC/1400 local on Sunday.
The start out of Table Bay promises to be an epic, fast and furious one, with winds of around 40 knots and choppy seas forecast. The famous 'Cape Doctor' – a strong southeasterly wind – will give the sailors a brutal introduction to Southern Ocean life.
As a result, the in-shore portion of the start has been modified to remove any gybes in order to limit the chances of damage to the boat, and there will be no leg jumpers.
