Volvo Ocean Race - Vestas 11th Hour Racing - RACING FOR MORE THAN A TROPHY
"Some things are out of your control in this world," said Skipper Charlie Enright before leaving Gothenburg, Sweden earlier this week. "You can only focus on what you can improve - and for us, that has been putting sustainability at the core of everything we do. We are racing for more than a trophy, we are racing for a legacy to inspire change and protect our oceans."
Ending on a high note is on the minds of all the crew, as they started the final leg, but this leg is extra special for rookie and Danish Olympic Bronze Medalist, Jena Mai Hansen, because 24 hours into the leg, the fleet sailed into her home of Aarhus for a turning mark in the harbor.
"I am going to be back here in a month competing for the World Championships trying to qualify for the Olympics in 2020," she said live from the back of the boat on the approach. The blue boat rounded the Aarhus turning mark in third place behind overall tied race leaders, Dongfeng and MAPFRE.
The fleet is expected to finish the Volvo Ocean Race on Sunday in The Hague. Keep up with the minute by minute coverage on volvooceanrace.com
