Volvo Ocean Race So Far

As teams approach Newport, Team Brunel holds a nine-mile lead on second place Dongfeng Race Team.

“The ‘bleeding’ compared to Dongfeng has stopped. The closest they got to us was 2.6 miles, we could read the sign writing on their sails,” said Bouwe Bekking of Team Brunel.

The top five teams in the race are just 36 miles apart with just over 500 miles still to go.
