Itajai, Brazilian Sailing City without wind.

Though Itajai, is a famous City in Brazil, known for its sailing interest, this Volvooceanrace version, was left without proper wind for sailing.

Floating during Itajai In-Port race

The In-Port Race was sailed, though it was more a floating event , than a sailing event. Ultimately Team Brunel drifted as first over the finish  line of a shortened parcours. This brought Brunel, its 1e I-P victory.

The start of Leg6, Itajai to Newport, was almost worse, with little or no wind, especially close to shore. It was therefore good that the 1e buoy, was also declared to last buoy and the Boats let loose on the Atlantic.
