Spain’s Team MAPFRE Takes Leg 3 of Volvo Ocean Race

Monday, December 25, 2017

 

Spain’s MAPFRE passed Dongfeng Race team to win Leg 3 of the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race.

“We had to fight very hard for this victory. There’s so much of the race to go. But for now it’s looking good and we’re very happy of course,” said skipper Xabi Fernández moments after crossing the finish line

Leg 3 took the competitors from Cape Town, South Africa to Melbourne, Australia.

This was the second straight leg in which MAPFRE edged Dongfeng Race Team.

Volvo Ocean Race in Newport

The race was last in Newport in 2015 and saw more than 130,000 people visit the Race Village at Fort Adams State Park between May 5 and May 17.

In comparison, 65,000 visited Newport for the 2012 America's Cup finals.

The large crowds during the 12-day event ranked Newport ahead of Abu Dhabi and on equal footing with Cape Town, even though Newport’s population is a fraction of those ports.
