ClipperTelemed+ arrives in Rio

My team ClipperTelemed+ arrived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil yesterday after sailing about 5,200 nautical miles from England to Brazil. The team completed this first leg of the race in 7th place. Congratulations to team LMAX Exchange who won the leg in impressive fashion.

Today is crew changeover day, which means preparations are well underway for leg 2 from Rio to Cape Town, South Africa. That race will start on October 7.
