At 1000 local time on April 16, Vestas 11th Hour Racing sailed into the Rio Itajaí-açu with three modified sails and a jury rig fabricated in the Falkland Islands. Covering 1600 miles in nine days, the delivery crew of five were all smiles as the shore team, fellow competitors and Volvo Ocean Race staff greeted the boat in the Race Village in Itajaí, Brazil.

Now just 6 days to go until Leg 8 Start
