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.
