Abu Dhabi team wins Volvo Ocean Race's in-port series

posted on 28/06/2015: 1595 views



GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN: Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing completed a Volvo Ocean Race double on Saturday in the city of Gothenburg (Goteborg in Swedish) when its sixth-place finish in the final in-port race secured the overall victory in the 10-part series, reported the Associated Press.

The team clinched the main off-shore trophy in the nine-month race on Monday when it arrived in southern Sweden after a journey of more than 38,000 nautical miles and stops on every continent.

The in-port races have been held after every major leg. Only one other team, ABN AMRO in 2005-06, has won both the off-shore and in-port part of the competition in the 41-year history of the triennial event. – Emirates News Agency, WAM – http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395282546702.html
