On the other side of the world, the Volvo Ocean Race’s Auckland Prizegiving ceremony has just taken place. Naturally, leg winner Groupama was the winner of multiple awards including:
- Yann Riou, Groupama Sailing Team Inmarsat MCM Award
- Groupama Sailing Team, Sportsmanship Award
- Groupama Sailing Team, Leg 4 First Place Award
Leg 4 was a more challenging leg, and now teams are preparing for the Auckland In-Port Race and the start of Leg 5, a long jaunt through the Southern Ocean to Itajai, Brazil.
