Volvo Fleet Arrives in Boston

Here are some distant photos of the top three Volvo boats in leg 6 from Rio as they pass Gloucester, Mass on the way to the finish this afternoon in Boston. They passed so close to Gloucester because they had to circumnavigate the right whale exclusion zone en route to Boston.

Top is Ericsson 4, winner of the leg.

Ericsson 3 is shown passing Thacher Island; they finished in second place, but only twelve minutes behind Ericsson 4 after 15 days.

And bottom is Telefonica Blue -- they finished only 6 minutes after Ericsson 3.
