Team Alvimedica (USA/TUR), fifth in Abu Dhabi

Team Alvimedica (Charlie Enright/USA) claimed today fifth place at 1329 UTC with an elapsed time of 24 days 21 hours and 29 minutes. The young crew led by 30-year-old Enright, from Rhode Island, had mixed feelings from a leg (2) which saw them sail to the assistance of the stricken Team Vestas Wind whose boat was grounded on a reef in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

The Team still have the option of a claim for redress for their actions to be heard by an independent, ISAF-appointed, international jury.

˙Part of us wants to start Leg 3 (Abu Dhabi to Sanya, China) tomorrow, but it will good to have some time to rest and reflect,Ó he said. ˙Wevre excited about where we are. Itvs just a matter of refining some small things."
