 Volvo Ocean Race 2012  Leg 8  Day 6  'Groupama' did it
'Groupama' with Franck Cammas FRA finished leg 8 of the Volvo Ocean Race at her home port Lorient FRA yesterday as winner, one hour ahead of 'Camper' (Chris Nicholson NZL) as second, and 'Puma' (Ken Read USA) as third. 'Groupama' has now a 23 points' lead in the overall rankings, a solid first position considering that only 42 points max will be awarded in the remaining two In-Port-Races and the final leg to Ireland. After the crucial 8th leg with 'Telefonica' hit by a rudder damage, the French team will most probably be the clear winner of this round-the-world regatta. The report and the video of the arrival.
