Team Russia

1 AV 2

Team Russia, skippered by Andreas Hanakamp, crossed the scoring gate at longitudinal 58 degrees east on the second leg of the Volvo Ocean Race 2008-09 in fourth position this morning at 09.36 GMT to pick up 2.5 points.

Crashing though huge waves and taking everything the roaring fourties had to throw at them, Andreas and his men, battled on overcoming a massive broach and unbearable conditions to race ahead to a fanatastic fourth place at the scoring gate. Now across, Kosatka will point her bow north for the 3,000-mile home stretch to Cochin. 

Andreas reports from the boat, “We are very happy with the 2.5 points we just picked up at the scoring longitude of 58E with boat, sails and crew all in one piece. We had a lot of discussion during the preparation period about the concept of the boat and to be honest, it feels very good to sit on a solid boat in the midst of the Southern Ocean.
