China’s Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag Wins Leg 4 of Volvo Ocean Race

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

 

The Chinese team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag won leg 4 of the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race which took teams from Australia to Hong Kong.

With the win, Scallywag picks up eight points and moves them to fourth place in the overall standings. Rhode Island's Vestas 11th Hour Racing is in third. 

“I was really impressed by the way we operated over the past couple of days. We had a pretty big lead and then through no fault of our own, about two-thirds of it got taken away. But we stuck to our guns, did what we thought was right and it’s worked out,” said skipper David Witt.

The leg four win comes a week after team member Alex Gough fell overboard and had to be pulled from the water.

Following the rescue, Scallywag extended their lead to almost 100 miles.
