Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing claims 5th consecutive win with 3rd place

Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing (ADOR) – the emirate’s Volvo Ocean Race-entrant – finished third in its home In-Port Race and remain top of the Volvo Ocean Race In Port Race leaderboard, after battling to the finish line behind winners Team SCA and second-placed Team Brunel in a contest delayed by extremely light winds off the city’s Corniche waterfront. Over 25,000 fans packed the Destination Village on the Corniche breakwater and were treated to a masterclass of yacht racing from the six professional crews as they maneuvered their 65-foot carbon yachts around the tight inshore course.
