Volvo Ocean Race – Leg 7 Finish

May 27, 2015

The Volvo Ocean Race teams finished Leg 7 of their around the world race today in Lisbon, Portugal.  The teams left Newport, RI on May 17 and after 2800 nautical miles all six teams finished within a few hours of each other.  Congrats to Newport’s hometown team Alvimedica for passing Dongfeng Racing and finishing in 3rd place(just 1 minute ahead of Dongfeng).  Fifth place to third place? Perhaps, the Newport start gave Team Alvimedica some good luck!  Here are a few of our favorite shots of the home town team sailing in Newport.
