DESCRIPTION
Having left Newport (Rhode Island) on Sunday 20th May, the Volvo Ocean Race is now in its ninth leg. An incredibly passionate crowd has welcomed the seven teams in the place that is considered to be the American mecca of sailing. In particular, eyes were on the local heroes of Vestas 11th Hour Racing. The fleet is currenlty heading towards Cardiff, UK, and it is expected to arrive after roughly eight days of Atlantic crossing, which is worth double points for the scoreboard.

This week we will cover:
- The skippers’ high expectations for Leg 9;
- The tight battle at the top of the leaderboard;
- An exciting stop-over with great action on the water and a bustling race village.
