Does anyone know if the previous yachts were actually "Open 60's", or were they "Volvo Ocean 60's"? As they seem to be two different boats?! Just the maximum length for an 'Open 60' seems to be 18.228m (or 60ft), where-as for a 'Volvo Ocean 60' it seems to be 19.5m. So are they the same boat or not? Is the link actually correct to point people to the International Monohull Open Class Association? (Frammy7 (talk) 22:20, 21 August 2008 (UTC))

Decided to create a new page for the 'Volvo Ocean 60', as, from the data I have - that seems to be the correct name for the previous class of yacht used in the VOR - corrections welcome though! (Frammy7 (talk) 17:51, 22 August 2008 (UTC))
