Volvo Ocean Race

The Volvo Ocean Race fleet is safely tucked away in Baltimore’s Inner Harbour.
The final three boats finished under the shadow of a giant thunderhead, the weather signalling the first break in the record-setting high temperatures on the American East Coast this week.

The final three boats in the fleet sailed their own private race over the last 36-hours, at times separated by just minutes on the position reports. But Kevin Shoebridge's Team Tyco outduelled the others to claim sixth place on the leg-standings.

Amer Sports Too, led by Lisa McDonald, at times looked as though they might earn their first finish with at least one boat behind them on the water, but in the end, Knut Frostad and his djuice Dragons proved too quick in the light shifty conditions that dominated the final 24-hours of racing.

As djuice replaced Tyco on the arrival pontoon, and Amer Sports Too crossed the finishing line, the heavens opened and a flood of rain ushered McDonald' s crew into the inner harbour.

Subject to possible protests, the final points table below leg six shows Assa Abloy chipping away one point at illbruck's still formidable seven-point lead. Amer Sports One and Team News Corp. are holding close to Assa.
