Following the finish of Leg 2 of the Volvo Ocean Race in Melbourne, Australia, there is scheduled an In-port race on February 4. Given the number of breakdowns within the VOR fleet during Leg 2 (and the previous problems during Leg 1), we wondered if it made any sense to abandon this buoy race, and use that extra time to insure that the fleet is fully prepared for Leg 3.
Should VOR abondon In-port race after Leg 2?

Good arguments on either side of this, so we polled the 'buttheads from Jan 19-23 on what they thought:
Should the VOR abandon the In-port race after the finish of Leg 2 to provide more time for repairs to the fleet?
Yes - 41.30%
No - 58.70%
