Telefónica Blue dominates

Telefónica Blue ruled the day on Saturday afternoon earning two wins from two starts on in-port race day at the Volvo Ocean Race stopover at Fan Pier, in Boston. With Iker Martinez on the helm and Bouwe Bekking calling tactics, Telefónica Blue dominated the afternoon, leading from pole to pole in both races.

Racing was postponed for forty minutes in very light conditions before a weak sea breeze developed for the first race. Green Dragon and Ericsson 4 raced off the start line at the pin end and looked good initially, but by the top mark, Telefónica Blue and Delta Lloyd had used the right side of the course to their advantage to lead the fleet.
