Barbed Wire-Fringed Cargo Ship Transports Volvo Ocean Race to Persian Gulf [VIDEO]

In a highly non-traditional yet prudent move by Volvo Ocean Race organizers, 5 of the 6 racing yachts in the Volvo Ocean Race were picked up from their Indian Ocean “safe haven” today and are now on their way to the Persian Gulf where they will finish the rest of Leg 2 from Cape Town, South Africa to Abu Dhabi. ┬áThe 6th boat, Team Sanya, has suffered structural and hardware failures in the first two legs of this race and is currently being repaired in Madagascar in preparation for Leg 3.
