Another Spanish Success Story for Telefonica

Team Telefónica held off a fierce challenge from PUMA to win the Sanya Haitang Bay In-Port Race on Saturday and extend their overall lead to 18 points before the start of Leg 4 to Auckland.

Telefónica went into the race under some pressure after a last minute change of rigging and with two poor performances in the three previous in-port races.

But a smart decision to drive hard right off the start line took them clear of the fleet and despite the relentless challenge of PUMA Ocean Racing powered by BERG they went on to seal another valuable win. Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing took the third podium place.
