Saturday, March 10, 10:33 UTC. One of the longest leg of the Volvo Ocean Race linking Sanya in China to Auckland in New Zealand has been won by French crew on Groupama 4 with onboard the New Zealander crewmember “Brad Marsh” who became today the star of his country.

Franck Cammas, JeanRichard Watches’s ambassador and his men led the race through a difficult sea and strong winds during more than 5220 miles covered in 19 days.

The six crews - in order of arrival: Groupama (FR), Puma (United States), Telefonica (ESP), Camper (NZ), Abu Dhabi (UAE) and Sanya (CPP) fought in a battle while overcoming severe winds of more than 30 nodes, and waves of more than 6 meters.

This is the first French victory since 1977 on Auckland’s finish line; only Alain Gabbay on Export 33 had won on handicap back.

This victory allows French crew of Groupama 4 to gain a place in the overall standing and therefore to take the second place behind the Spanish Telefonica.
