Vestas 11th Hour Racing Returns to Action in Leg 7 of Volvo Ocean Race

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

 

The Rhode Island team of Vestas 11th Hour Racing has returned to competition in the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race as leg 7 gets underway.

Vestas 11th Hour Racing sat out the last leg of the race after their ship needed repairs.

“It feels good to be back on the water. We’re a little on the back foot but I guess that’s to be expected. We feel good that we’ve got another 7,000 miles ahead of us. It’s all or nothing – we treat every leg the same. We certainly couldn’t try any harder,” said Vestas skipper Charlie Enright.

Leg 7

The fleet is approximately 24 hours into leg 7, which takes them from Auckland to Itajaí, Brazil.

Dongfeng Race team and MAPFRE jumped out to an early lead on the opening day of the leg before Turn the Tide on Plastic and Team AkzoNobel skirted around the outside of the fleet to take a slim lead.

There are currently just 17 miles separating first place Turn The Tide on Plastic and seventh-placed Team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag.
