After arriving last night to a second place finish in Brazil, Armel Le Cléac'h, co-skipper Banque Populaire VIII, reflected on the race: " We are super happy, one that we finished the race and two that we were playing to win. We did not lack for much. We were beaten by a stronger team. And we are a great team together. We have a great boat. Certainly we were in the running, there was a lot of fixing to do but that comes with a boat which has showed a great performance at times.
