Back to sea for the Volvo Ocean Race

Monday May 21 2012 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

A mega-weekend in sailing where generally light winds were the order of the day. Despite being a driftathon, no one questioned that Loick Peyron and Energy Team were the winners of yesterday’s final race at the America’s Cup World Series in Venice, while Artemis Racing picked up the match race prize. It’s official – Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing likes the light. Ian Walker’s team won Saturday’s Miami In-Port and led the fleet out on leg 7 back to Europe yesterday. The IMOCA 60's Europa Warm-Up set sail on Saturday and yesterday were expecting a caning. The Olympic classes World Championship deluge has wound up with a surprise win for Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark in the 470s, a less surprising win for Ben Ainslie at the Finn Gold Cup, while Ali Young narrowly missed the podium in the Radials, gold going to Gintare Scheidt See the report from the Vice Admiral’s Cup.
