Galway, Ireland to Marstran, Sweden. Twist, turns, gales, drifters, blown gear, blown egos, blown expectations. This 1,450-mile leg had it all. Seriously, it seems every time a leg is claimed to be the toughest of the race, the next proves to be just as hard (with the exception of the slaughter from Singapore to China). But this most recently concluded leg, won by Ericsson 4 (their third consecutive leg win, which gives them an insurmountable 15-point cushion in the overall standings) wrapped up with rapid-fire finishes this morning, takes the cake, especially for Kenny Read and crew. Only Ken could do justice to their roller coaster of a leg, and their rise to second from the bottom of the leaderboard.
