During the Etihad Airways In-Port Race today, Abu Dhabi arrived first, closely followed by Groupama...

Since they left Alicante, Abu Dhabi has had tough times, as they were forced to give up the first leg and then arrived last in Abu Dhabi... But things are changing now: they arrived first, giving their spectators a homemade victory, Abu Dhabi first in Abu Dhabi !

As for Groupama sailing team they showed that they are indeed quite weel in the Persian Gulf waters. Although they didn't take the first place as they did when arriving to Abu Dhabi, or during the practice race and even in the Pro-Am Race, they took a comfortable second place, one minute behind Abu Dhabi.

Camper arrived third, widely ahead of Puma - who had to make a penalty turn, and Telefonica - whose crew seemed quite asleep, and therefore arrived fifth...

Now, will Groupama do the same in Lorient ? First during the In-Port Race at home, for their public's greatest pleasure ? Let's see, from June 16th to July 1st, how they do at home !
