June 12, 2012Volvo Ocean Race: In-Port Race (Lisbon)Current overall leader Groupama took first place, while PUMA battled back for a well-deserved second place finish. CAMPER (with Emirates Team New Zealand) snagged the last podium spot, while overall second-place boat Telefonica came in last. Telefonica's poor finish resulted partially from a penalty on PUMA immediately after the start and partially from a snapped masthead halyard.

"In the lead up to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the Finn class in Brazil is undergoing something of a resurgence. It's recent National Championship, held in Sao Paulo, attracted 25 boats, and many of them were new boats built in Brazil. The 2012 Olympian Jorge Zarf dominated the series with six race wins from seven races. Second was the double Olympic Star medalist Bruno Prada on his return to the Finn class. Andre Mirsky was third.
Also on the water was photographer Ale Socci from Green Pixel Photos. As well as the expected race action photos, he took some incredible water level shots of the fleet from a variety of angles proving once again, it's not what you have that matters, it's what you do with it."
