ALICANTE, Spain -- The Volvo Ocean Race has announced several changes for the next edition of the round-the-word race, which will start in October 2017. Clayton Geathers Jersey .Among them are double points on long trans-oceanic legs and various bonus points, new crew-size rules that encourage teams to have more women sailors, on-board reporters that can rotate among the boats and a new route that includes more Southern Ocean racing. At close to 45,000 nautical miles, it will be the longest edition of the marquee offshore race.The change in the scoring system will encourage strategic risk-taking by the teams, designed to open up the competition in an era of close one design racing. That will give teams an incentive to gamble more often to split the fleet.Double points will be awarded for the two Southern Ocean legs, from Cape Town to Hong Kong, and Auckland to Itajai, Brazil; and the North Atlantic leg from Newport, Rhode Island, to Cardiff, Wales.Additionally, a bonus point will be awarded to the winner of each leg, to the first team to round Cape Horn in a nod to the mythical significance of this turning point in the race, and to the team with the best total elapsed time overall.On the crew front, all-male teams will be limited to seven sailors, one fewer than in 2014-15. Mixed teams will be given a significant numerical advantage. Combinations can include seven men and either one or two women, five men and five women, seven women and one or two men, or 11 women.If female offshore sailors want to compete at the same level as the best in the world then they need to train and race with the best, said Ian Walker, the winning skipper in the 2014-15 race. It would be very hard to compete with only seven people on a Volvo Ocean 65 against teams of eight or nine. This new rule will almost certainly force teams to hire women and that will create a great platform for learning.Team SCAs all-female crew finished third in the In-Port Race series in the last VOR and became the first to win an offshore leg in 25 years. But it still saw a ceiling in its overall offshore performance without being able to learn from the more experienced sailors.In the last race, onboard reporters were assigned to each team. In the next edition, a team of on-board reporters will be created that can move from boat to boat on leg to leg, balancing both integrity and trust.As part of mandatory qualifiers, the fleet will sail in the Rolex Fastnet Race, one of the most revered and feared tests in sailing, from England to the Fastnet Rock off the southwest coast of Ireland and back to England. The Volvo fleet will then race from Plymouth, England, to Lisbon to complete Leg 0. The fleet will then sail a new prologue from Lisbon to Alicante, Spain.In other changes, sailors can post social media updates direct from the oceans for the first time; LeRaven Clark Jersey . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. Anthony Castonzo Jersey . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. . "We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence. Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen.Sri Lanka were undone by teenage seamer Aaron Beard as they laboured with the bat on day one of their three-day tour match against Essex at Chelmsford. Beard took 4-62 on his first-class debut, dismissing Kaushal Silva and Dimuth Karunaratne within the first three overs and top scorer Kusal Mendis (66) and Milinda Siriwardana after lunch, as Sri Lanka stumbled to 254 all out.Niroshan Dickwellas 53 from 69 balls from the No 8 spot lessened the damage somewhat but Tom Moore (3-48) followed up Beards hugely impressive work by polishing off the tourists tail.Jaik Mickelburgh (42no), into the Essex side with Alastair Cook now preparing to play against Sri Lanka for England, then drilled nine fours as the hosts further frustrated their opponenents by reaching 81-2 by the close. Niroshan Dickwella was one of ttwo Sri Lankans to pass fifty Eighteen-year-old Beard had Silva (0) caught behind from the fourth ball of the match and doubled his tally in his subsequent over by trapping Sri Lankas other opener, Karunaratne, lbw for eight. Johnny Unitas Jersey. Mendis shared a third-wicket stand of 88 with vice-captain Dinesh Chandimal (27) but eventually snicked Beard through to wicketkeeper Matt Cross, before the Essex youngster bowled Siriwardana (5) four overs later. Mathews notched a patient 31 prior to being ousted by Jesse Ryder, while Moores haul, which included ending Dickwellas stay at the crease, saw Sri Lanka dismissed in exactly 63 overs.Moores day was not complete, however, with the 24-year-old castled by Shaminda Eranga for three while serving as night-watchman after Nick Browne (28) had been pinned in front by Dhammika Prasad.Watch Sri Lankas three-Test series with England live on Sky Sports 2, starting with the first game, at Headingley, from 10am, Thursday, May 19.
