Ericsson 3 wins gate race

A quirky addition to Leg 8, the Rotterdam Gate Race, was completed this morning as the fleet passed by the Netherlands. The gate race course was marked out by two rounding points requiring the fleet to complete a reaching loop. The idea was for the times set by the Volvo Open 70s to be logged and for professionals and amateurs to challenge those times when they were let loose on the course once the fleet had passed.
