SEATTLE — "Visit Seattle" is currently in seventh place out of 11 boats racing around the world. Each team is made up of people with little or no experience sailing.

The boats are about to take off on leg seven of the race from Seattle down the coast towards Mexico, through Panama Canal, and up the East coast to New York.

We caught up with the team while they're stopped in Seattle to hop on board their boat.
