Title: Leg 9: Lorient-Galway, finishing the around the world
Leg: Leg 9
Description: Almost two in the morning in Galway and and the dash to the Irish port which took 1 day, 13 hours, 57 minutes and 33 seconds for “Telefónica” means that the offshore sailing for the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012 has drawn to a close. In a tight bunch, as predicted, the fleet have finally reached Galway (Ireland) in a steep margin of just 17 minutes between the top four entries to cross the finishing line. “Telefónica” with Iker Martínez finished fourth in the leg and in the overall ranking for the regatta which won't see any changes now.
