First Volvo Ocean Race win for Groupama

First Volvo Ocean Race win for Groupama

Monday March 12 2012 Author: James Boyd Location: New Zealand

Groupama brought to an end Telefonica’s Volvo Ocean Race winning streak when Franck Cammas’ French team was first home into Auckland on leg four. Puma was next to arrive as substantial compression resulted in the rest of the fleet arriving within two hours of her, Telefonica and Camper match racing to the line. Xavier Rohart and Pierre-Alexis Ponsot won this year’s Star dust-up at the Bacardi Cup. See our preview to the Class 40’s Solidaire du Chocolat. The race got underway on Sunday afternoon and this morning they are blasting across the Bay of Biscay in strong easterlies. In Sydney, the 18ft skiffs held their Queen of the Harbour regatta.
