Less than two days before the start of leg two of the Volvo Ocean Race, the great and the good assembled just outside Cape Town to celebrate the achievements of the first month of the race at the leg one prize-giving ceremony.

The big winner on the evening was the leg one champion and current overall race leader Ericsson 4. First, the entire Ericsson 4 crew was presented with recognition of their outstanding 24-hour record run of 602 miles. Simon Fisher, the navigator on ABN AMRO TWO, the previous holder, presented the trophy to Torben Grael, his navigator Jules Salter, and the rest of the crew.

 

Ken Read and his PUMA Ocean Racing teammates were awarded second place for the leg and sit just one point behind Ericsson 4 on the overall leaderboard. Green Dragon, the first boat to the scoring gate at Fernando de Noronha were awarded third place in the leg after Ericsson 3 lost two points due to an earlier penalty assessed by the International Jury for a measurement non-compliance.

The evening concluded with the sailors from all the teams thoroughly enjoying their penultimate evening in Cape Town, before turning their attention to the impending start of leg two, now less than 48 hours away.

Best 24 hour run – 602 miles, Ericsson 4

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics Seamanship Award – Martin Watts, Delta Lloyd
