 Volvo Ocean Race 2012  Leg 8  Day 5  'Telefonica' out
The full risk race has its first victim ! In the schuss towards Lorient in a 40 kn plus breeze, 'Telefonica' (Iker Martinez ESP) broke one of the rudders, and lateron after the gybe direction Lorient, the Spanish damaged the second rudder as well. They are sailing now in safety mode at half-speed and are already down on rank 5, practically loosing their chances for the overall victory. 'Groupama' with Franck Cammas has taken the lead again and is extending the gap on the persuers heading for her home port Lorient. 'Camper' (Chris Nicholson NZL) follows 15 miles behind, 'Puma' (Ken Read USA) is 22 miles behind the French. The race-viewer, the daily report and the videos.
