Telefonica Blue has filed protest papers with the Race Committee alleging an infringement of the Racing Rules of Sailing by Ericsson 3 for an incident during the leg three of the Volvo Ocean Race.

Skipper Bouwe Bekking wrote of the encounter in an email later that same day: "We were sailing under spinnakers and we were neck on neck with Ericsson 3. They passed us once, but then we passed them again. We had to navigate through an area of shoals, so tricky for the navigators, not to let us run aground.

"Then we got involved in an incident with Ericsson 3. We were both on opposite tack, and we had the right of way. It resulted in us protesting Ericsson 3...I won't go into details what exactly happened so that I don't influence the international jury. The good news is that we got the entire incident on video tape."

Telefonica Blue would go on to win the leg, while Ericsson 3 finished in third place.

With the Christmas break imminent, it is likely that we'll have to wait a few days to hear about a schedule for the protest hearing.
