A Short and Windy Leg…..

….. lies ahead as Volvo Ocean Race Teams depart Lisbon, Portugal. The 1250 NM leg promises some of the windiest conditions yet. Keep a close eye on the overall leader board as Team Telefonica has dropped back for the first time in the race do to some comparably poor sailing to, in and from Lisbon.

Team Groupama for the first time in the regatta hold the lead over the Spaniards and Team Puma is slowly creeping up the leader board. Puma seem to have dominated the in-port start of this leg, but have since slipped back to third in the leg behind regatta leaders Telefonica and Groupama.
