After two oceans’ worth of missteps and almost-brilliant moves, Franck Cammas finally has something to be truly happy about! Groupama edged out Telefonica by just 52 seconds in the half-day sprint into Abu Dhabi, with Camper, Puma, and Abu Dhabi bringing up the rear. Disappointing for the Emirati-owned boat, but congrats to Les Francais (enfin!).
Remember that the in-port race will be streamed live right here on SA, and of course at www.volvooceanrace.com on the 13th, with the double-secret-pirate leg following the next day.
