Volvo Ocean Race Sprints Into Abu Dhabi

4 Jan

At least there was an exciting finish to this strange, two-part, Leg. Groupama snuck by Telefonica at the end to win the 98-mile fast reach into Abu Dhabi by just 52 seconds

Leg 2 leaves Telefonica atop the standings, with 66 points, chased by Camper with 58. Then there is a gap to Groupama at 42 points. After that you have the Leg 1 dropouts, starting with PUMA at 28.

We're going to need Leg 3 (and beyond) to shake up the standings if this Volvo is going to get exciting.

Here's what the sprint mini-leg looked like:
