Intense final few miles of Leg 9 as Volvo Ocean Race nears Cardiff

Entering into the final twenty-four hours of Leg 9 of the Volvo Ocean Race, less than a nautical mile separated frontrunners Team Brunel and AkzoNobel with only 100 nautical miles left to go. The Dutch pair was neck and neck after eight days of racing across the Atlantic from Newport, US to Cardiff, UK with third-placed Chinese team Dongfeng just eleven nautical miles off the pace. A podium result for Donfeng could see them displace overall race leaders MAPFRE from the top of the standings with just two short legs to go. Winds are expected to drop to under ten knots in what may be an anxious finish as teams attempt to find the quickest route to the Welsh capital.
